I did do some pondering of your son's dilema and have a suggestion. I know it may seem like 'caving in' to do it this way, but the rigidity of the college system seems to be keeping reasonable people who work there from helping us any other way. Here's what I thought of.
This is the link to a page of Touro University. Here's a copy of what that page says at the very bottom:
"How are exams administered?
In the Cyber Classroom, students are graded on cases that are submitted, a session-long project, and other course elements. Most courses have no traditional exams."
And here is a link to the Touro Universities home page:
This is what I remembered. Long years ago (before there was much internet), I had a supervisor who had gotten his whole degree from this university. He described the experience this way:
He received videos by mail, watched them, and answered a few simple questions, saying that he had watched (and maybe understood) the video, and mailed these answers back. Then they sent him his degree.
You might look into getting just the math for your son, and then transferring the credits to his present university. I know that this isn't the way that you or your son would have wanted to handle this matter.
P.S. Please be sure to let me know that you've received this message. If not, I'll be trying to find you all over the forum. Also, I believe that these courses are extremely expensive.
