The information below is generally geared towards the Thomas Edison State University BSBA General Management. You can modify the AOS (Area of Study) accordingly if you're going for a different AOS concentration. For individuals who like online testing, you would just substitute these or the spreadsheets as those are geared towards online testing and not testing by CLEP/DSST.

Mapping Out Your Plan

Using the following info, create your spreadsheet or modify the one I have created

With this info, you should be able to map out where you are and what courses are required. Good luck. You can then get yourself a calendar and schedule yourself, pace yourself, maybe do a few courses a month. Generally speaking, the AOS is the hardest part to find the courses, don't spend too much time on deciding. If you would like a different concentration such as the CIS, the only difference is the AOS. Just do it! You can follow this plan to the T and get the degree you need, or make very minor modifications.  Don't stall!

Side Note: If you find this helpful and you have completed your degree with this information, please PM me [bjcheung77] and send me a message or a picture of your success.  I love reading success stories, I just warms my heart to see others happy and feeling great.  I look forward to myself completing that elusive Bachelors degree as well and I can then work on the Masters. For many of us, we're using this opportunity to study to better ourselves and improve our own knowledge.   I hope you all have a great journey and get to complete something as elusive yet simple as this...  When I look back at the times I've fallen, I've gotten back up and am still working hard to get this completed for my own benefit and self fulfillment.
