Transfer Credit

The online M.P.A. program allows up to 15 credits from previous college coursework to be transferred into EOU. We offer a free transfer credit review. All EOU majors require a minimum of 20 EOU credits. Students seeking to exchange credit for life/work experiences can pursue EOU’s Assessment of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) process. The APEL process is another pathway to earn course credit while reducing tuition costs. To learn more, contact an enrollment counselor at 855-805-5399.
