We offer multiple ways to earn credit.
With our online degree programs, there is no need to travel to a campus after work or on the weekends. We're accessible
to you wherever, whenever.Plus, earn credit through alternate sources such as testing and exams, military training, lifelong learning through our portfolio program, credit evaluated by ACE, National CCRS (formerly PONSI), or Charter Oak and by transferring credit earned from other regionally accredited colleges and universities.
It's important to you and to us. As a result, our students find the cost per credit
of our online courses one of the lowest around. Plus, we accept most credits for
transfer, and award credit for your work and life experience through testing and portfolio assessment. Great value and low cost. Isn't that what you've been searching for? Learn about

we have been awarding degrees for over 35 years!
