Get the credit you deserve
Apply to have your work and life experiences evaluated for potential college credit.
If you're an undergraduate student or thinking of becoming one, you might be closer to a degree than you think.
Knowledge you’ve gained outside the classroom from professional, training or life experiences could translate to college credit through our Prior Learning Assessment (PLA). We don’t want you to take classes you don’t need — and we’re pretty sure you don’t either.
Ways your transfer credits count
Let us take the guesswork out of figuring out which of your courses will transfer. Our trained enrollment representatives will walk you through the entire process. So even if it’s been years, we can help you make the most of your hard work.
The skills you’ve acquired while serving our country won’t just help you in life. The military documents its training programs, so you might be able to apply training for college credit. A trained representative can help answer your questions.
We evaluate academic credentials from a number of international colleges and universities. But If we’re unable to review your credits for some reason, we’ll direct you to an agency that can. Note that foreign language transcripts require certified English translation.
Why transfer credits to University of Phoenix?
For every three credits you bring in, you shave more than a month off your graduation date, and hundreds off your total education expenses. And with our Tuition Guarantee, you can save even more.

Don’t have college transfer credits?
That’s okay. Through the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process, you could potentially get credit for what you know by submitting copies of your relevant certifications and transcripts or writing an experiential journal. PLA works two ways:
1. Have your training evaluated for credit.
We’ve already assessed many popular licensure and corporate training programs from the six areas below. Review our Pre-Evaluated List and Credit Recommendation Guide to find out if you can get credit for yours.
- Corporate training
- Industry licensures
- Technical school courses
- Professional development
- Life experience
2. Write a journal about your life experience.
- Communication arts
- Social science
- Physical education, and more
