Zzz - Obsolete Degree Plans/Dposborne's BS in Nuclear Energy Engineering Technology

From Degree Forum Wiki
This degree plan is based on an outdated catalog. Do not use this plan as a template for your own degree path. You can develop a new plan based on the current catalog for the school you wish to attend, and visit DegreeForum to get help from members who can assist you.


This is an outdated degree plan for Thomas Edison State University. DegreeForum user Dposborne completed a BS in Nuclear Energy Engineering Technology through TESU largely from  credits for training in the U.S. Navy (ACE Accredited), combined with courses taken through Coastline community college, ALEKS , TESU as well as CLEP and DSST exams.  

WARNING: TESC HAS NEW GENERAL EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS. This plan is out of date. Always be sure to check with TESU for their most current degree requirements when forming your own plan!
