Near Graduation Terms and Conditions

As a University of Phoenix (University) student who is within 24 credits of graduating from your bachelor’s degree program, you are eligible to participate in the University of Phoenix Near Graduation Program.

Here’s how the program works.

You are eligible for this Near Graduation Program if (i) you have been out of attendance for at least one (1) year or greater as of September 1st, 2021; (ii) you either return to your bachelor’s degree program or enroll in a new degree program, online or at one of our active markets, provided you  have 24 credits or less remaining; (iii) start a class on or between September 1st, 2021, and November 30th, 2021;  and (iv) do not have an outstanding balance on your University account. Upon meeting these eligibility criteria, you will receive a tuition rate of $320 per credit on your remaining courses taken between September 1st, 2021, and August 31st, 2022.

If you don’t meet the above criteria, then we would still love to see you return to the University to earn a degree, but you aren’t eligible for this Near Graduation Program.
