Community College Partnerships

Our student-focused transfer credit policy helps community college graduates maximize previously earned credits in order to save both time and money. In addition, full-time community college faculty and staff can benefit from our wide selection of graduate level courses, certificates, and master’s degrees.

General Education Credits and Reverse Transfer

We work hard to ensure that transfer students get all the credit they deserve. Students can earn up to 90 transfer credits toward a bachelor’s degree at APUS, with up to 30 general education credits automatically awarded for their A.A. and A.S. degrees. We also offer reverse transfer options so our partner colleges can retroactively award associate degrees to their students.

Employee Development

Full-time community college faculty and staff can benefit from our wide selection of courses, degrees, and certificates. Interdisciplinary course bundles and stackable credentials offer additional educational options.

Like Minded Students

Our online learning model was developed specifically for working adults. This means your students or staff will study at APUS alongside other ambitious, diverse, career-focused adults located around the globe — all sharing a desire to continue their education and reach their full career potential.

Unparalleled Support

Students can connect with an admissions or academic advisor, librarian, or financial aid representative by phone, email or chat. Advisors are available 7 days a week. Faculty can be reached online through the learning management system, and our career services team provides personalized career assistance to students and alumni for resume reviews, job fairs and more. Our mentoring programs empower students and alumni to share their knowledge and experience through 1:1 or group mentoring.

Featured Schools

We welcome students from all community colleges, but these featured schools have agreements that directly align their associate degrees to our bachelor's degrees, making it easier for graduates from these schools to transfer directly into a bachelor program.
