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. See which Strayer classes will award credits toward your degree  here. This offers you the opportunity to earn your credits faster, and to save on tuition as well. You must pass Sophia, Propero and StraighterLine classes with a score of 70% or greater to earn equivalent Strayer credits.

All three online learning firms have followed Strayer’s lead by offering strong personal support for their courses created to be taken online at any time. We strongly urge you to contact your Strayer personal Student Services Coach if considering this option.
