This is an outdated degree plan for Excelsior College. Clep101 completed an Associate in Applied Science in Technical Studies with area of focus in Computer Technologies using the below degree plan. His degree plan included course credits from CLEP and DSST tests, Excelsior courses, community college courses (Central Texas College), and credits from his Army training (via his AARTS Army transcript). He began working on this degree in May 2008 and completed it in April 2009, a total of 11 months.

Quoting from Clep101:

I have 21 Semester hours in the Arts and Sciences and 19 in the Elective Component.
All three sections are broken down into 20 Semester hour sections.
My expenses were $80 Enrollment fee and $85 Graduation fee (since I took two classes with them), and $120 for books.
Army Tuition Assistance paid for the rest.
I paid for 6 Months of InstantCert membership $108 for all the CLEP and DSST study material.
