In addition to scholarships, transferable courses between University of Phoenix and Study.com have saved students $7.7M in tuition costs
University of Phoenix and Study.com are pleased to announce single-course scholarship opportunities are available for students at the University. Four single-course University tuition scholarships will be offered this year by Study.com, and any undergraduate student at the University of Phoenix may apply. The scholarship will cover the tuition cost of one University of Phoenix course, and the application period for the first quarter of the year is open until March 31, 2023.
“The University of Phoenix understands that busy adult learners need affordable and efficient means to educational attainment,” stated University Chief Academic Officer and Provost John Woods. “It’s great to see our students have additional opportunities to receive tuition assistance and save time with an on-demand platform like Study.com. When students feel empowered to move at their own pace, they can pursue their educational goals with confidence and prepare to enter the career of their choice.”
Amber Scott is a University of Phoenix student who received a Study.com scholarship last year. “This scholarship helped me get one step closer to my goal of helping children and families in the remote Native Villages of my state,” Scott shares. “All my life I have wanted to help others: to empower them with knowledge and skills they can use to create a more fulfilling future for themselves and their families. I want to give to those who often do not have the opportunity to receive.”
In addition to the Study.com scholarship opportunity, the courses students take on Study.com transfer seamlessly and help fulfill their degree requirements at the University of Phoenix. Study.com offers more than 220 college credit recommended courses, 68 of which are upper-division, that can be applied toward a University of Phoenix associate’s or bachelor’s degree and students can transfer up to 87 credits from Study.com to University of Phoenix lowering the total degree cost.
“In conjunction with The University of Phoenix’s online associate’s and bachelor’s degree programs, Study.com’s College Accelerator solution enables students to reach their educational goals in an affordable and accessible manner,” said Chris Mancini, chief growth officer at Study.com. “These scholarships provide an additional pathway for students from diverse backgrounds to obtain their degrees while helping them to avoid common obstacles that hinder the higher education experience.”
The transferable courses between University of Phoenix and Study.com have saved students $7.7M in tuition costs. More than 2,000 University of Phoenix graduates have participated in a seamless affordable transfer program designed to help students save money and graduate faster. The graduates accelerated their degree path using Study.com’s College Accelerator solution, which gives access to 220 credit-granting courses through Study.com that can be transferred towards a college degree. Study.com’s College Accelerator courses meet equivalent academic standards to traditional higher education programs and have been evaluated and recommended credit by the American Council on Education (ACE) and the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS).
