    OK. As some of you may know, I plan to get at least two bachelor's degrees- one in history and one in business. The major problem for me is money.
    I've already taken (based on my TESC evaluation):

    Phi 101 (Intro to Philosophy)
    Phi 180 (Intro to Ethics)
    Pos 110 (American Government)
    Pos 210 (State and local government)
    His 101 (Western Civ I)
    Gen 299 (Honors Seminar)

    US History

    German (2)

    1 Unit (Lower) Leadership (TESC has Hrm 315- and can apply it to Business)
    2 Units (Higher) Military History (TESC has His 253- and does not apply it to a history major)

    ACE courses taken:
    2 Units (Lower) Library Techniques (USDA Grad School)
    2 Units (Lower) Introduction to Computer Security (TEEX)
    UExcel Exams
    World Conflicts since 1900

    Any Straighterline courses that could help that I don't have covered
    CAEL PLA course (including a PLA)
    TEEX Computer Security courses

    Any things you think I should take for a BA in History and BS in Business?
    What college would be my best buy for all this? Do my Uexcel courses qualify me for Excelsior evaluation/admission for free?

    Completing a degree at TESC under the Per Credit Tuition Plan is the absolute cheapest way I've found to complete a bachelor's degree at a regionally accredited school. Passing Uexcels will not give you any special treatment at Excelsior. However, completing TECEPs will allow you to avoid the enrollment fee at TESC. Read the thread below for an explanation. The prices are little higher now, but the concept is still the same.

    TESC will not let you double major in history and business since these degrees come from two different schools within the college. You would have to graduate with one and then earn 24 new credits for the second.

    Thanks! I am taking the UExcel courses since the test center is within walking distance.
    So, I couldn't submit all my stuff at once, with the numerous business courses taking care of all the extra stuff I'd need to get a Business degree?
