How long will it take me to finish my degree? 

The length of time it takes to complete your degree at Peirce College typically depends on two things:

  • The amount of transfer credits you apply to your degree
  • The amount of credits you are able to complete in a session at Peirce

Both of these things vary greatly depending on the student.

The most common type of transfer credit at Peirce College come from courses taken at other accredited colleges and universities. Peirce can also award transfer credit for prior learning and college-level knowledge you have acquired outside the classroom, including military and professional training, credit-by-exam (including CLEP exams) and professional licenses or certifications you may possess.

      Who teaches courses at Peirce College?

      Courses at Peirce College are taught by the institution’s full-time faculty members and adjunct faculty members, who specialize in serving working adults in an online setting, and who bring diverse backgrounds from their professional industry experience to the classroom. This enables students to apply what they learn in their courses directly to their careers and prepare for professional growth. Faculty work closely with students every week and are available for online or face-to-face, personalized support.

      How can I earn credit for what I already know?

      You can earn credit at Peirce College for college-level knowledge you already possess through the following methods:

      • Credit-by-exam
      • Portfolio assessment
      • Credentials, training and other programs that have been evaluated for college credit

      Credit-by-exam programs, such as the CLEP®, the College-level Exam Program, and Peirce College exams, allow students to test out of a degree requirement. These exams provide significant savings in time and money for adults who know the material because they are a fraction of the cost of course tuition and typically take less time to complete.

      With portfolio assessment, students develop a portfolio containing evidence that they possess college-level knowledge that is equivalent to what they would have learned in a specific course that is required in their degree program. Like credit-by-exam, portfolio assessment typically costs much less than course tuition and can save adults who know the material time and money.

      Students can also earn credit for professional licenses and certifications, professional and military training and other programs that have been evaluated for credit by Peirce College or the American Council on Education and fit a specific degree program requirement. There are no additional costs to earning this credit for students, who have completed the training or possess the credentials, which comes over as transfer credit.

      Peirce has also aligned its programs with several no-cost and low-cost course providers, such as Coursera, Study.com, Onlinedegree.com and Sophia Learning. Select courses offered by these providers can be applied as transfer credit to undergraduate programs at Peirce College
