Eligibility requirements and other details

  • You are a new or readmit student registering for the fall 2020 term in a Strayer University bachelor’s degree program. You are not enrolling in a certificate, associates, masters, or DevMountain program.
  • You meet Strayer University admission requirements.
  • You are transferring in at least 30 qualifying quarter credits into your Strayer University bachelor’s degree. (Example of qualifying would be from a regionally accredited institution or ACE) 
  • Unofficial transcripts can be used to determine eligibility, but official transcripts are required to award the tuition cap benefits. 
  • Neither you, an immediate family member of yours, nor a household member of yours currently employed by the University, the University’s parent company, or any other subsidiary of the parent company (Strategic Education, Inc.).
  • Once the tuition cap of $10,000 is reached, you no longer pay tuition, technology fees, or for the diploma conferral fee. Your course tuition and technology fees paid contribute to reaching the $10,000 tuition cap.
  • You are required to pay for books and course materials with a separate method of payment for the duration of your program. These costs do not count towards the tuition cap and are not covered once you reach the tuition cap of $10,000.
  • You will maintain good academic standing (GPA 2.0 or greater) and good financial standing.  If you do not, you may no longer earn towards the tuition cap or receive the tuition and fee benefits.
  • If you fail to maintain good academic standing, in the quarter following the quarter when you fail to maintain good academic standing, the discount will be cancelled until such time that you return to good academic standing.
  • If you drop or fail a course, that tuition charge or any pro-rata withdrawal fees will not accrue towards the $10,000 tuition cap. Only courses successfully completed count towards the $10,000 tuition cap.
  • If you drop or fail a course after hitting the tuition cap, you will be responsible to pay the pro-rata withdrawal fees. The program will cover the course if you successfully re-take it. 
  • Only courses successfully completed will be covered by the tuition cap benefits and not have a tuition or technology fee associated after reaching the $10,000 cap.
  • If you choose to change to an ineligible program, discontinue, or withdraw (either actively or administratively) from Strayer, you will become ineligible for capped tuition. Under no circumstance will recipients be eligible for a cash payment or any other compensation for the value of unused tuition cap benefits.
  • If you take two or more consecutive quarters off, you will be responsible to pay the pro-rata withdrawal fees. If you take two or more consecutive quarters off, you will permanently forfeit the tuition cap and any benefits associated.
  • You will be held to academic consequences of withdrawing from or failing any course.
  • This tuition cap benefit can be combined with the laptop offer, but may not be combined with any other scholarships, tuition discounts, or Graduation Fund. 
  • You are not enrolled in a Degrees@Work program, or VerizonOnsite.
  • In all cases, the tuition cap benefit program is at Strayer University’s discretion.
 
  • Save on tuition. The Strayer Graduation Fund lets you earn one class for every three classes you complete successfully, to be redeemed at the end of your program.1
 
  • Get a new laptop. Enroll in any bachelor’s program, and get a new laptop pre-loaded with Microsoft software.2
 
  • Get support. Stay on track with mentoring from your own personal Student Services Coach and access to tutoring3 at no additional cost for extra support if you need it.
 
  • Learn online or on campus. Attend classes online or at one of our 70+ campuses across the country.

Transfer your credits in 3 easy steps.

Strayer wants to make it easy for you to get the credit you deserve. Our policy is to be as generous as possible when granting credit for previous coursework. Switching to Strayer is simple. How simple? Here’s how:

 

 

Complete the online form
Begin the transfer process by completing the submission form on this page and our admissions officer will contact you to discuss your transfer credit options.

 

Request the official transcript
When possible, Strayer will request the official transcript from your former school(s) on your behalf. Work with the admissions officer regarding the transfer process. You can also contact your former school and request that an official transcript be sent to Strayer’s Registrar Office.4 It can take 2-4 weeks for us to receive your transcripts, so it’s best to start the process as soon as possible.

Evaluation and award of credit
Once your transcript is received, Strayer’s Registrar Office will review your transcript for possible transfer credit. Your admissions officer will contact you as soon as possible with a list of approved credits and you can check the status through the online portal to see how the credits fit in your curriculum.5 Meet with your admissions officer to finalize your path to graduation.

4Some schools may charge a fee to have a transcript sent to Strayer, depending on the school’s policies.
