The University of Phoenix announced a new academic agreement with Casper College on Feb. 1, 2022.

The agreement supports building pathways from community college courses to higher degrees at the University of Phoenix by allowing Casper College students to take advantage of transfer pathways as well as concurrent enrollment for specific degree programs: R.N. to Bachelor of Science in nursing, Bachelor of Science in information technology, Bachelor of Science in management, and Bachelor of Science in healthcare management.

The agreement also allows nursing students at Casper College to save on the cost of their education. Under the agreement, University of Phoenix will waive the tuition of every sixth course for Casper College students who enroll in the R.N. to Bachelor of Science in nursing degree program.

“We are excited to partner with the University of Phoenix and provide another accredited transfer option for our students after their associate degree. Given the frontier nature of Wyoming, having online transfer options not only allows students to work while they finish their chosen degree programs, but also helps retain employees in high-demand jobs,” said Brandon Kosine, Ph.D., vice president of academic affairs at Casper College.

“This new agreement with Casper College opens up opportunities for students to earn degrees related to in-demand industries such as nursing, information technology, and healthcare,” said University of Phoenix Provost John Woods. “Our goal is to collaborate with community colleges and help busy working adult students make more efficient use of their studies, time, and money to gain the degree they seek for their chosen career path,” he noted.

The University of Phoenix has generous transfer policies and provides a supportive transfer pathway to all students, including students of community colleges. Prior eligible credits can cover up to 75% of a student’s bachelor’s degree. Additional Prior Learning Assessment fees have been waived for students going forward; this assessment evaluates on-the-job training, workplace certifications military service, and experiences for college credit. It can help students save money and graduate faster.

Community college students transferring into the University of Phoenix can save $144 on every three-credit course at the University of Phoenix, and lock in with the fixed tuition rate for the completion of their degree program.
