 Educational Partnerships: Community Colleges

APUS is proud to work within our students’ communities and provide the opportunity for community college graduates to seamlessly continue their post-secondary educational pursuits by enrolling in one of our bachelor’s degree programs. As part of this effort, APUS has established partnerships in education for transfer credit with many community colleges, whereby graduates from our partner institutions possessing an associate degree may transfer in credits earned while achieving their associate degree.

Featured Schools

Our featured schools offer course crosswalks that align your earned associate degree with specific bachelor’s programs here at APUS. These plans show course for course how you can maximize your transfer credits and get started with up to 69 guaranteed transferrable credits. If you are not seeking one of these specific programs, you can submit all earned credits (up to 91) for evaluation toward any of our bachelor's programs.

Block Transfer Schools

Similar to our schools with course crosswalks, block transfer agreements help you to seamlessly continue your post-secondary educational pursuits by transferring in as a block all the credit earned in achieving your associate degree. Through the block transfer method, you will not go through a course-by-course evaluation of your course credits, as all of your conferred associate degree credits may transfer as a group.

Students participating in a block transfer agreement:

  • Have their conferred degree applied as a block toward their APUS bachelor's degree, and will receive the same number of transfer credits as were required for their conferred degree.
  • Are eligible based on their conferred degree from our partner institution, regardless of where they completed all of their previous coursework to earn the degree.
  • Do not go through a traditional course-by-course evaluation of their credits, as all of their credits from their conferred degree are transferred together.
  • Are not eligible for additional transfer credits beyond the block transfer, therefore, transfer credit from other sources will not be considered.
  • Have all of the general education requirements of their APUS bachelor's degree program fulfilled.
  • Will instantly attain junior status with APUS.
