Earn Your Bachelor’s Degree Online Faster Than You May Think

AIU allows certain applicants to receive credit for prior learning through work or military experience, which could enable you to earn your bachelor’s degree online faster.4 Through AIU’s Prior Learning Assessment program, students may be able to translate learning acquired outside of the classroom into proficiency credit that counts toward earning their degree. To be eligible, the outcomes of employment experience, non-collegiate/non-school based education, or life experience must be documented and applicable to the student’s chosen program of study. Additionally, AIU must determine that these outcomes are similar to what would have been gained through college-level courses. AIU’s Law Enforcement Advanced Standing Program (LEASP) can allow qualified students who are pursuing an online bachelor’s degree in criminal justice to turn their police academy training into college credits.

Students may be able to transfer in up to 75 percent of the credits required to complete a bachelor’s degree. By taking advantage of these programs, certain students could potentially earn a bachelor’s degree online in as little as 2 years.1 While doing so would not be typical, our tuition and graduation date calculator can help give you a better idea of your expected graduation date based on your own personal circumstances.
