- Why Strayer
We’ve helped many students reduce the cost of their degree by granting credit for prior education, military experience, work experience, proven skills, and more. See all the ways, in addition to coursework, you can add credits toward your degree.
Our goal is to help you master the skills to compete and excel. There are many paths to getting there; we’re here to help you find the quickest, most affordable route to getting all the credits needed for your degree. For more information about alternative credit requirements, please refer to the Strayer University Catalog.
From Strayer’s own Challenge Exams to CLEP and DSST exams, you can test out of certain required courses if you’ve already mastered the skills.
Show us what you know. Submit your previous experience; transfer credits from other schools, military experience, professional certifications or create a life learning portfolio demonstrating your experience—all for Strayer credit.
We award credit for certain online courses taught by other organizations. Earn your degree faster, and save on tuition as well.
