How can you make college more affordable?
The passion for success came from Kathryn Medina’s father. As a first-generation college graduate, he was determined to provide his children with a foundation to believe that all of their goals were possible. When he became a corporate executive, his job took the family all around the world.
“As a child of an expatriate, I was always on the move,” says Medina. “I learned not only how to meet and talk to people, but also how to listen to them and how to look at things from their perspective.”
With Strayer University’s online programs, Medina was also able to pursue her education, no matter where she lived. “Once I earned my undergraduate degree from Strayer University, I was off and running,” she adds.
Medina sure ran far, all the way to a presidential appointee serving as the Executive Director of the Chief Human Capital Officers Council at the U.S. Office of Personnel Management in Washington, DC.
The council is composed of 52 human resources professionals from 26 federal government agencies and departments, including NASA, Homeland Security and the Department of Defense. “I have to be able to convince every member that our decisions are in the best interest of every agency and department—and that can be a challenge,” explains Medina.
She and the council members focus on implementing HR initiatives that can be effective throughout every corner of the federal government. “In the federal government,” Medina says, “people move from one agency to another, so it’s important to have our HR training standardized and in one centralized place.”
In addition, Medina helps foster a culture that not only recognizes and rewards the workforce, but also stands up for employees and encourages growth. “We’re going to continue to make sure that motivating employees and keeping them engaged remains at the top of our list,” she states. When Media looks back at her time spent growing up abroad, her education and her family’s support, she understands how her attitude was shaped to believe in the possibility of success. She truly appreciates “each of these experiences for how they prepared me for the future.”
Does this sound familiar? You’ve completed courses at a college or university but stopped before you could finish the program. Now you’re ready to consider completing your degree, but you aren’t sure if your prior credits will count toward a new program.
Chances are, you can transfer some or all of your existing credits into a different school’s program. That can help you save time and money on the degree you end up completing at Strayer University or another accredited online institution.
What do you need to do if you want to transfer your credits? Here’s how to get started:
Step 1: Contact the school.
Talk to the school you’re interested in. Typically, an admissions officer can talk about your background, what your goals are, and which program you want to start. You can start this process with Strayer by completing an online submission form.
Step 2: Send your transcripts.
You’ll need to provide official transcripts from your previous school or schools. That will give the new school a chance to review what you’ve done and see how many credits can be transferred. At Strayer, admissions officers can request your official transcripts on your behalf (if your prior school accepts third party requests), or you can contact your previous schools yourself. Note: This process can take up to 4 weeks, so be sure to request your transcripts as soon as possible.
Step 3: Find out how many transfer credits you’ll receive.
The registrar’s office at the new school will review your transcripts and calculate how many credits can transfer into your new program.
If your transcripts are sent to
Strayer, you’ll be able to check the status of your review through an
online portal. Your admissions officer will be able to tell you how
many credits have been approved for transfer.*
It all depends on the school’s requirements. Contact an admissions officer for more details about what the school will accept for transfer.
Strayer accepts a wide range of courses for online college transfer credit including most credits with a C grade or higher from accredited institutions.
Again, it depends on the way the school operates. You can apply your entire associate’s degree toward a related Strayer degree program, provided that you earned it at one of our 460 allied partner schools (see the complete list of transfer credit alliances).*
Many schools will accept life experience—including prior education, military experience, work experience, or proven skills—for transfer credits.
Strayer evaluates prior experience using a method developed by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL). This method assesses the knowledge you’ve gained outside the classroom on a course-by-course basis for possible credit toward a degree; if you meet up to 70% of a course’s objectives, you may be able to apply life experience toward college credits. Talk to an admissions officer to learn more.
Yes. This is one of the best ways to take all of the work you’ve done in school—and life experience—and apply it toward advancing your education. By saving you time and money, credit transfers can help you achieve your goals faster and prepare for your next opportunities.
90% of Strayer transfer students said that switching to Strayer was the right decision for them**. Strayer provides students flexibility and support.
