It happens more often than you might expect: Someone begins a university degree program, ends up stopping for any number of reasons, but wants to return at some point. As time passes, starting up again can feel like an onerous task, especially if the student needs to switch colleges. A common concern is whether or not that past education will count toward the new program, or if the student will be forced to start all over.

Laura C was one of those students, and Strayer University was the solution. “I was just 18 credits shy of graduation when personal tragedies forced me to withdraw,” she says. “I enrolled in Strayer and they helped me transfer and ‘test’ out of courses because of job experience. I’m proud to now have my bachelor’s degree!”


If you are interested in returning to school and finishing your degree, there’s no time like the present. You may be closer than you think to the finish line. Strayer University works with transferring students who have taken a break, and has several tactics to help you get on the fastest track to finish your degree. When possible, Strayer will:

  • Request transcripts from your previous school
  • Include up to 28 finished courses towards your degree
  • Evaluate work experience for potential college credit


“I transferred credits from a college I attended 20 years ago, and they all transferred over. I have renewed confidence to finish my degree. Going back to school has been the best decision I’ve ever made!” - Melanie R.

There’s a reason that 90 percent of students with transfer credits say Strayer was the right choice. We’re committed to helping you work towards your degree by working with your education – past, present, and future.
