    B.A.A.S. Degree Requirements:
    • 120 total credits
    • 30 minimum credits from UNT (the average is 45)
    • Transfer at least 60 credits (core, concentrations, electives), up to 90 credits
    • Complete 3 unifying courses (9 credits), all core courses (42 credits) and 3 concentrations (36 credits). Each concentration is 12 credits.
    • $330 per credit hour for most (See Admissions Tab)

    This Coursera degree program allows you to transfer up to 90 credits out of 120. It means you can finish the program within a year after you transfer in all of 90 credits!

    and its price is surprisingly low... it costs only $330 per credit. So after you transfer in all of 90 credits, you can get your Bachelor's for $9,900 ($330 x 30).

    This program could be a good option for someone who want to get Bachelor's from a recognized school for under $10k.

    The big three (Charter Oak, Thomas Edison State University, Excelsior) could be still much cheaper than this program but if you can spare at least $10k plus some CLEP examination fees, I'd recommend getting a University of North Texas degree which has much better reputation.

    So ideally, you can try CLEP, DSST, and get this University of North Texas degree in under one year.

    I asked them which credits they accept. They answered they accept any college credit from accredited US institutions.
    This looks like a great deal for people who want to transfer up to 90 credits!
    But keep in mind that you'll need minimum 60 credits to get in to this program. Also, CLEP, DSST credits should be transferred to colleges like Excelsior or TESU before you can transfer them to University of North Texas.

    I wish this program was around when I was looking.

    Yeah, this is a better deal than any other online degree completion programs.

    That doesn't mean that you won't be qualified for this program. You can still transfer your credits to this program and get this degree by taking $10k worth of their online courses. Holding two bachelor's degrees is totally fine in my opinion.
