This is a great option for non traditional students, especially working adults. Everyone in the financial aid office has been friendly and helpful over the phone. Web interface is easy to use, too.

I absolutely love TESC! So many options including Guided Study, Online, TECEP tests, and PLAs plus they accept Straighterline and ALEKS courses as well as individual courses from other colleges. They also took 54 of my 60 credit hours, including a D, from 15 years ago, so I didn't have to retake them all!
