08 Aug UOP Series – Learn About the University of Phoenix Admissions
Each degree program at the University of Phoenix has specific requirements that must be met in order to enroll in them. Listed below are the admissions guidelines for the program that you might be interested in enrolling in at the University of Phoenix. Some credits from colleges are transferable, so make sure you check with the University of Phoenix to see if you can get any credits from your previous college experience.
To enter an associate or bachelor degree program at the University of Phoenix, a student must:
o Have already earned a high school diploma, GED, or equivalent. If a student does not currently meet this standard then they can arrange to take the GED through the state or through the nearest GED testing center.
o Currently have a job and be employed. The reason that this is a requirement is that students need to have access to an organizational environment that will allow them to apply the concepts that they learn in their courses at the University of Phoenix. Some of the undergraduate programs even require students to already have one year of full-time work experience.
o Be a citizen or permanent resident of the United States. Students need to hold a valid visa if they are taking classes on a campus that is located in the United States.
o Complete and submit all the required forms for admission to the program of their choice.
o Submit documentation of immunizations received if the student is a resident of Oklahoma or Tennessee and is enrolling in a campus-based program.
As part of the admission process at the University of Phoenix, and depending upon the grades and/or scores you have achieved, prior classes taken at regionally accredited or nationally accredited degree-granting institutions, or the credit a student has earned through a national testing program may be looked at and considered for academic credit. If you have already had professional training or if you served in the military and then join the family at the University of Phoenix, it may very well be possible to convert your training or experience into academic credits.
