Here is a little trick.
You don't fully commit to attending and paying for WGU until you approve your classes in AAV. This means you can get all the way through the transfer evaluation and everything else and still back out. Its extremely easy if you plan on paying cash, just dont pay. If you are using financial aid, just cancel it if you decide not to attend. (Just dont approve any classes in AAV if you dont plan on attending. Approving them is agreeing to pay tuition).

You have final say of when you start. If you don't approve the Academic Activity Verification you don't start yet. Apparently there are a lot of people starting lately. I know I've referred about 10 people so far and Veritas has referred more from here. That's just people from this site. Plus WGU seems to run through quite a few enrollment counselors, if they get too many complaints they're out.
Alex should probably be gone from how you guys talk about him. If you don't feel the EC is being straight with you, request a new EC.
I agree that motogpman should be pi$$ed and should get some straight answers..Give em hell

That's weird. I just looked at that transfer eval rules in the student handbook and your MCSA covers the A+, Net+ , and Sec+ classes that makes 4. You may want to check your MS transcript yourself and make sure WGU got it and that it's correct.
I made sure to check the rules for transferring on or after July 1.

Ok, as of now: 22:33 p.m., that's 10:33 for youz knuckleheads ( I say that with all due respect....ok, it's the cheapo margaritas at the local cantina), guess what.......
No answer from knicol, BUT, isn't it amazing that I got a response from Alex AND a voicemail. Hmmmm..... Now here is what caused me to go have a few, in order to calm myself down and have a nice date with my lovely wife.
I get an email, from Alex, saying that my transcripts are being evaluated. Imagine that. That is after I get an email from the transcripts department.....but.....hold it...wait......
Out of all my certs, from MS/Comptia and also my CC ( who is a direct partner BTW), you guessed it, only 2 classes are waived for the whole BS degree plan. LOL. I wanted to seriously strangle someone, but, like the good little soldier, I decided to be professional and call someone. Since I got someone new on the phone, and it wasn't their fault, I tried to be professional and somewhat civil.
I talked to a new counselor, explained the situation, and that they need to put their money where thier mouth is. I feel like I am getting a two bit salesman who dropped the ball, gave me the run around and empty promises ( email to send as reference) and if they want MY BUSINESS, then they need to get their #%$# together, otherwise I will go to UT or A&M, even if I have to pay more. I am a man of principal. I don't want to judge WGU by this one individual, but under the circumstances, I am about to tell them to stick it.
The new counselor is going to take over, send everything back to the transcripts department, and I won't be dealing with Alex anymore. Emails with excuses and manpower explainations..... Sorry buddy, aint gonna fly. They know that I am on TE and that TE has a dedicated thread, ok, 2 of them, regarding WGU. I am hoping that the new counselor is good to his word, but if this doesn't work, then WGU will not get any of my business. I was told that "someone" apparently didn't do their job right, DUH.
Anyways, for those of you that are having a grand time there, good luck. I am sure that I may just have gotten someone who doesn't have a clue. We shall see and I will keep you updated.

I've finished all my intake and I'm tentatively slated for a July 1 start. WGU is still waiting on one of my transcripts to arrive, and I'm still waiting on the approval of my education reimbursement request from my employer. If it doesn't all come through in time for July 1, I'll have to push back to August 1 instead. The waiting part sucks. I'm ready to get started. LOL
