The Residency Requirement at Excelsior College Residency Requirement at Excelsior College2021-05-25T12:00:00Z,<div class="ExternalClass115ECFDDD2C847E78C566B4674EF797D">The college credit transfer policy at Excelsior College makes the school a great choice for those who have started degrees at other accredited institutions or have an associate degree and want to move on to earn a bachelor’s degree.<br> <br> The policy, which ranks among the best in the country, also can result in cost savings for students who can transfer credit from other schools and earn their degree sooner.<br> To earn a degree from Excelsior College, students must meet the standards of the school’s residency requirement. These standards mandate that all students complete three specific courses at Excelsior College: <ul> <li> A Cornerstone course at the beginning of their time at Excelsior College</li> <li> A Capstone course at the end</li> <li> A 1-credit Information Literacy course</li> </ul> <strong>A Generous Transfer Expiration Policy</strong><br> Excelsior College also designed its college credit transfer policy to provide a generous expiration period for courses taken in the past. According to the college’s transfer credit guidelines, students may still be able to transfer credits earned decades ago. Guidelines vary based on the degree program.<br> <br> For example, the health sciences transfer credit policy allows students in the Bachelor of Science in Health Care Management/MBA dual degree program to claim credits earned within 20 years to the date of enrollment in the undergraduate component and within 10 years of the date of enrollment in the graduate component.<br> <br> For the Master of Science in Health Sciences specializations, students must earn the credits within seven years of enrollment.<br> <br> The Bachelor of Science in Liberal Arts and Associate in Science in Liberal Arts programs have no time limit on credits earned. In theory, a student could transfer 113 credits and then complete a Cornerstone, Capstone, and Information Literacy course to graduate.<br> <br> “This means that credit a student completed in the ’70s,’80s,’90s or last month could be used to fulfill degree requirements, depending on what type/level of credit the student presents to us,” Schenck says.<br> <br> Excelsior College provides a list of time limitations on transfer credit for all online degree programs. The Academic Evaluation team is divided into specialties, says Schenck. This gives each degree area a group of dedicated experts to support students.<br> <br> With the potential of transferring so many credits, it’s worthwhile for prospective students to determine what credits they will receive. Many may find they are closer to completing their degree than they imagine.<br> <br> <strong>For more information about getting started with Excelsior College and the academic partnership with DAU, visit </strong><a href=""><strong></strong></a><strong> or call </strong><a href="tel:18448439296"><strong>(844) 843-929</strong></a><br></div>string;#/partnerships/blog/The-Residency-Requirement-at-Excelsior-College

Here’s How to Maximize Your Credits & Training at American Public University’s How to Maximize Your Credits & Training at American Public University2021-04-29T12:00:00Z Q2 Banner.jpg, Q2 Banner.jpg Q2 Banner.jpg<div class="ExternalClassD59C0512EC324736BF08E3FA30A7DCCD"><h2><strong>Here’s How to Maximize Your Credits & Training at American Public University </strong></h2> <p>Like many adult learners, you may be thinking about starting a degree program having already accumulated academic credit or work experience. It’s important to understand that previously earned credits and even your career background may accelerate degree completion at the undergraduate and graduate level.<br> Here’s what you need to know to leverage what you’ve already learned—which could help you earn a respected degree for less time and cost.</p> <strong>Give Yourself More Credit – You Deserve It</strong><br> Don’t leave previously earned credits on the table. APU provides you with a dedicated, helpful team and $0 transfer credit evaluation (TCE) service. Even as a prospective student, you can request a <strong>free preliminary transfer credit review</strong>. If you have any academic credits from other universities, professional training, military service or instruction, then do not hesitate to contact APU – they’ve designed course equivalency transfer credits specifically for DAU members.<br> Here are a few questions you should consider: <ul> <li>Are you planning to start over with a new major, but have general education credits to transfer?</li> <li>Are you continuing an academic major that you started elsewhere and have core courses to complete?</li> <li>Have you attended military or federal training programs or academies?</li> </ul> If you answered “yes” to any of the above, you should explore APU’s robust transfer credit program. In fact, you’re in good company—82% of undergraduates transferred in credit in 2020.<br> <br> <strong>Less Complicated – More Transfer Friendly </strong><br> APU goes the extra mile to see if military experience, professional training, or previous academic learning counts for credit so that students have the best chance to transfer in credits that in some cases they already qualify for, but didn’t realize it. Students can potentially bring up to <strong>90 transfer credits</strong> toward a bachelor’s degree. APU will review your college credits, JST and CCAF transcripts, DANTES, POST, ACE-evaluated training, and credits by exam.<br> <a href="">APU is an educational partner with DAU, offering you additional benefits</a> to help you achieve your academic goals including the 5% tuition grant, technology fee waiver ($65 per course savings), and a book grant offering no-cost ebooks and textbooks for students earning undergraduate academic credit.<br></div>string;#/partnerships/blog/Here’s-How-to-Maximize-Your-Credits-and-Training-at-American-Public-University
