I have their application packet...it is confusing, but looks like they require a 75.00 application fee PLUS a 300.00 fee (NON-REFUNDABLE) in order to do a full "credential review" They also appear to charge you tuition for the credits you already received somewhere else....if they are transferred in to TESC. Makes the $$ per credit hour double to about 300.00 per credit hour. approx. 13k for about 40 credit hours, if done in two years. This is leaving a bad taste in my mouth, and I may pass them by.
flowjoe - I spoke to the dean of nursing, and yes, you are correct about the $75 appl fee and the $300 credential review of your transcripts. That floored me too. For out of state RN-BSN program, tuition is $352 per cr/hr. I did asked her why so much $$$ for the appl & transcript review, her answer was that TESC is extremely generous about accepting all/majority of your classes, and that you would end up taking less classes as opposed to other colleges that would not accept those classes. If you obtained your ASD/ASN (accredited) degree at a community college, I was told all would be accepted, and extra classes could be put towards any general electives you might need. I checked out lots of schools
in my state and of course out of state, all seem to be anywhere from $340 to $550 cr/hr. I ended up narrowing my selection to 3 other online schools other than TESC, and it seems to be anywhere from $12K to 15K as you said for the 2 yrs. The only reason I was leaning towards TESC, is due to accepting more of my classes....plus they were not requiring me to take 2-3 extra religions, or extra history, etc.. Best of luck to you.
