Now there’s an easier way to transfer credits

At Strayer, our simple transfer process rewards the hard work you’ve already done, by letting you transfer credits for up to 28 bachelor’s classes. And you can do it in just three steps:

  1. Apply online and an Admissions Officer will contact you.
  2. When possible, we’ll request your transcripts, or you can do it yourself.*
  3. We’ll contact you when you get approved – usually within three weeks.

*Some schools may charge a fee to send transcripts, and it may take up to four weeks for us to receive your transcripts.

Transfer Credit Scholarship

Transfer 27 or more credits and enroll in any bachelor’s program, and you could save up to $18,000 with our Graduation Fund and Transfer Credit Scholarship*.

*Important information about the Strayer Transfer Credit Scholarship

  • The total discount available by combining the Transfer Credit Scholarship and the Graduation Fund will vary by student, and depends on how many transfer credits the student brings to the University.
  • Student, any immediate family member of the student, or household member of the student may not be currently employed by the University, the University’s parent company, or any other subsidiary of the parent company.
  • Student must transfer at least 27 quarter credits (or credits equivalent to 6 Strayer classes).
  • When needed, unofficial transcripts can be used to assist in determining eligibility, but official transcripts are required to award the scholarship.
  • The scholarship discounts will start in the term Strayer receives and evaluates the official transcripts.
  • Student must not take off more than two (2) consecutive quarters to retain the scholarships described above.
  • The Strayer Transfer Credits Scholarship may be combined with the Graduation Fund, but cannot be combined with any other Strayer scholarship/tuition discount.
  • Eligible programs include all Strayer University undergraduate programs. This scholarship does not include JWMI, Degrees@work, or Verizon Onsite.
  • Scholarship applies to course tuition only. Books, supplies, and other fees apply.
  • No refund or cash value on unused scholarship dollars.
  • For students whose tuition is billed to an employer or sponsor, the scholarship is applied first to tuition charges and then the sponsor is billed the net tuition amount (to the extent tuition benefits are available).
  • The recipient student must meet all Strayer University admissions requirements by program.
  • If the student is being readmitted to the University, that student must be in good academic and financial standing with the University ($0 past due balance at time of enrollment).

Strayer University gave me the confidence to go back to school. The enrollment process was easy, and everyone I met with was helpful. I've been at Strayer for two years now, and I always have help available when I need it — whether it's my Student Services Coach, professors or just my community of classmates.
