Students can save time and money when accessing college credits at the University of Phoenix for possible transfer

University of Phoenix delivers value in single course transfer credits, with more than 13,000 non-degree students taking more than 23,000 courses at the University in 2022. Online courses at University of Phoenix can be effective for students seeking to fill a credit gap in their degree program, for reasons as diverse as meeting admission or licensure requirements, fulfilling a prerequisite, making up a missing or failed course, or in anticipation of a challenging required course for which a student would like more preparation.

“Single courses meet a critical need for working adult learners,” states Doris Savron, vice provost at University of Phoenix. “As with our degree and certificate programs, we understand that individual courses can support degree and career goals, and each student benefits from our flexible course structure, career-focused curriculum, and practitioner faculty to help provide that meaningful step forward.”

University of Phoenix offers courses four to six weeks in length and up to 17 start dates throughout the year, providing a convenient and flexible solution for those seeking to earn credit for specific courses. Individual courses are available in many disciplines and at the undergraduate and graduate levels. University of Phoenix offers upward of 650 undergraduate and graduate-level courses in a range of academic disciplines, including accounting, healthcare, education, math, and the physical sciences, including science courses with a lab.

Individual classes at University of Phoenix can benefit working professionals as well as undergraduate students seeking to complete their degrees. Teachers needing courses for certification or recertification, accountants needing credits for the CPA (Certified Public Accountant) exam, and healthcare workers needing courses for industry requirements will find relevant courses to meet these needs.

Chantel Hansen, MSA, enrollment manager, shares, “Our online courses run so frequently, people have many opportunities to pursue their goals. Our enrollment team members can look at what is available in someone’s time frame, and [the student] can take that information back to their school and make sure they are approved.”

The transfer of credits is at the discretion of the receiving institutions. Accordingly, students should verify that any credits they earn at an outside, accredited university will transfer to their college before they enroll in an online course. University of Phoenix is accredited through the Higher Learning Commission.
