College credits/ degree

If you need a college degree follow the steps below.

The goal here is getting a degree quickly and at the least expensive cost from an accredited institution.

The traditional method of attaining a degree has become obsolete.


 Step1 :apply for a Bachelors Degree in Liberal Arts at Excelsior.edu Liberal Arts allows you to transfer the most amount of credits.

Step 2 : send transcripts from the NYPD and all colleges you attended to excelsior

Step 3: wait for your credit evaluation

Step 4: review credit evaluation MAP planner.
This will tell you what classes you need.  If you need assistance PM me. 

Step 5: use 
sophia.org a monthly based college. accredited institution to fill those classes you need based upon your MAP planner ie. Ethics, college algebra. This website allows you to take self paced classes. They are easy and there is no proctured exam. Understand these are only Lower level college courses. I finished 5 classes in close to 3 weeks and then cancelled my subscription once my transcript was updated.

Step 6: use 
study.com or coopersmith career consulting to fill other requirements....speak to your counselor before buying from websites and Confirm the class will fit the requirement.

Step 7: you are only obligated to finish 3 classes at excelsior. Doing this will drastically reduce the cost and save you a significant amount of time.  I just completed my Bachelors Degree in Liberal Arts through Excelsior University and am now eligible for promotion to Captain.  

Any questions PM me.
