YOU DESERVE CREDIT FOR YOUR LIFE LEARNING

At Strayer we recognize the value of your experience and so we offer credit for your prior education, military experience, work experience, proven skills and more. See all the ways, in addition to coursework, you can add credits towards your degree.

TRANSFER CREDIT

You can finish your degree on campus or online with Strayer University. Whether you've taken just a few classes elsewhere or want to build from your associate to your bachelor's degree, we can help you save time and money by getting credit for the work you've done. Our transfer alliances with more than 460 colleges and universities mean more of your credits count toward your Strayer degree.

3 EASY STEPS TO TRANSFER CREDIT

  1. Complete the Online Application.
    Begin the transfer process by completing an online application.
  2. Request Your Transcripts.
    Contact your former school and request that an official transcript be sent to the Strayer Registrar's Office. It can take two to four weeks for us to receive your transcripts, so you should do it as soon as possible. You need to complete this step even if your school is one of our partners
  3. Wait for Approval
    Strayer will review your transcript and contact you as soon as possible (usually within 20 days) with a complete list of approved credits.* Meet with your Admissions Officer to finalize your path to graduation.

For more information about transfer credit policies, please refer to the Strayer University Catalog.

CORPORATE TRAINING

Many organizations seek to improve the knowledge and abilities of their employees by providing corporate training, either through instructor-led classes or e-learning. Such sessions might be focused on giving employees the tools and skills necessary to perform a specific job function. Or, they might be broader in scope, like providing a management trainee program to prepare current employees to take on a leadership role in the future. The curriculum used in either or both of these formats may provide employees with exposure to college-level coursework, which may be transferable to your degree program at Strayer University.

If your training has been reviewed by the American Council on Education (ACE), request an ACE transcript or other documentation from your corporation. Although your corporation may be different, training history is most often maintained by the human resource or corporate training department. Transcripts must include course title, credit hours or CEUs, and proof of successful completion.

If your organization has an educational alliance with Strayer University, your internal training may have been evaluated for college credit, even if the training has not been reviewed by ACE. Your Success Coach can tell you if your employer is a member of Strayer University's alliance; see additional information on our corporate alliances.

MILITARY EXPERIENCE

Strayer University is proud to work with active and retired U.S. military personnel to recognize the credit you may have earned while serving our country. The experience you gained while in the military may be equivalent to college-level coursework. Learn more about Military Credit.

1 EASY STEP TO REQUESTING CREDIT

  1. Request a copy of your Joint Services Transcript (JST) to be sent to Strayer University for evaluation.

Strayer will review your transcript and contact you as soon as possible with a complete list of approved credits. Meet with your Admissions Officer to finalize your path to graduation. 

LIFE EXPERIENCE COUNTS TOO*

Not all learning is classroom-based; you deserve credit for what you’ve accomplished. Using procedures developed by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), we assess knowledge gained outside the college classroom on a course-by-course basis for possible credit toward a degree. Document and submit your college-level learning experiences in an online portfolio demonstrating your ability to fulfill course requirements. We’ll evaluate the portfolio under CAEL standards. Undergraduate portfolios must meet 70% of the course objectives and graduate/JWMI portfolios must meet 80% of course objectives to earn credit.

GET STARTED
  • Most undergraduate and some graduate and JWMI courses are eligible to earn credit via a life credit portfolio.
  • Choose a course and meet with your Student Services Coach or Dean to confirm your eligibility.
  • Download and complete the Life Credit Portfolio Application Form and pay the submission fee ($250 undergrad; $650 grad; $1,500 JWMI) to the business office (remember, that is significantly less than tuition for the same class)
  • Submit your portfolio online
  • After the review is complete, undergraduate portfolios that meet 70% of the course objectives and graduate/JWMI portfolios that meet 80% of course objectives will earn credit.


*The Life Credit Portfolio program is being retired at the end of the summer 2020 quarter. September 21, 2020 is the last day to submit a Life Credit Portfolio Application.

CERTIFICATION AND LICENSE

Through your professional or personal work, you may have earned a certification or license that can translate into college-level credit. Strayer awards transfer credit for select certifications that currently align with our courses. Certifications show employers and educators that you’re committed to your career success and keep your skills aligned with industry needs.

All you need to do is provide the verification information from a crediting authority (such as CompTIA, Microsoft or Cisco) to earn credit.

General notes:

  • In order for certifications to be considered for a course transfer, they must be verified by Strayer’s transcript evaluation team.
  • Unless specifically stated, one certification per course may be applied for a transfer.
