If you are a community college graduate, you'll be applying for admission to one of our undergraduate programs.
The bachelor's degree program is open to community college graduates who possess an associate degree and others who possess a high school diploma or its equivalent. This minimum 120- to 124-credit-hour program is the standard "four-year" undergraduate degree desired by most employers and prepares students for graduate study. All students who enroll in the bachelor's degree program must enroll in COLL100 - Foundations of Online Learning as their first course.
Selecting the right degree plan is a key step in ensuring a smooth admissions process and a successful educational experience. Many students come to us unsure of which program to choose and where to begin. Our Admissions Representatives can help you make this important decision. To speak with an Admissions Representative, call 877-777-9081 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you're browsing the degree program pages, keep these tips in mind:
Many community colleges have agreements with four year institutions to transfer successfully completed credit in order to complete a degree.
Select your community college from the list below to review the agreement.
The following community colleges have entered into formal arrangements with American Public University to offer their alumni "block transfer" enabling them to apply their AA/AS degree towards an applicable BA/BS degree. Thus, you can earn your BA/BS in half the time otherwise required.
If your community college is not listed below, you may still be eligible for transfer credit enabling you to save money and attain your BA/BS degree sooner. To find out how, please fill out the information request form and we will contact you to follow up.
APU's block transfer policy provides a seamless path for community college graduates to enter a wide variety of programs with "junior" status.
Students are typically admitted upon completion of the online application and orientation. They may then register for their first course(s).
Other Transfer Credit for Community College Graduates
All students with American Council on Education (ACE)-evaluated military or professional experience and education that they need to have evaluated for credit should submit a Transfer Credit Evaluation (TCE) form and supporting documentation. We will consider military or civilian training evaluated by the ACE as well as approved examinations, such as the College Level Examination Program (CLEP).
*TCE fee waived for all United States Active Duty Military, Guard, and Reserve personnel.
