Transfer Pathways and Community Partnerships
You can save even more by transferring credits to EOU online through generous transfer pathways. We offer Fast Track Transfer Pathways with 26 states, plus Transfer Equivalency agreements with community partners.
If you have extensive work experience or on-the-job training, you could get credit through Agency Sponsored Learning (ASL). You could also work with faculty in your program to pursue Assessment of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL), which could mean course credit plus reduced tuition costs.
“As a full-time working professional, taking classes online was the best option for my busy schedule. EOU’s remarkable staff made my transition seamless and the instructors challenged me to succeed. Even though the tuition is already very affordable, there were many scholarship opportunities that helped me finance my education. I had such a positive experience that I decided to continue my education with EOU’s MBA program this fall.”– Lacey Towers, 2016; Student Programs and Social Media Coordinator, Treasure Valley Community College; Ontario, Oregon
