COURSES OFFERING ALTERNATIVE FORMS OF EARNING CREDIT
You may be able to earn your degree faster by supplementing your Strayer University courses with online courses from Sophia, Propero or StraighterLine. Some courses offered by these online educators have been judged by Strayer to satisfy the requirements of equivalent Strayer courses, allowing you to earn credits for those classes.
