Getting College Credit

Strayer University recognizes that learning doesn’t only happen in the classroom. Many of our students enroll with the equivalent of college level credit through learning that they have gained at other institutions, in their professions, or through other life experiences. Strayer University recognizes the many ways that you have learned in the past to ensure that you are given the credit you deserve toward your degree. This credit will help you complete your degree program as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Strayer University staff will work with you to identify and evaluate all of the potential ways you may be eligible for academic credit toward your degree. This section will provide you with information about each option, including University policies concerning such credit.
