ORANGE BEACH, AL–Kaplan University and Columbia Southern University (CSU), an accredited private online institution, recently partnered to maximize transfer credit awarded for CSU alumni. According to this agreement, CSU graduates will be eligible to transfer up to 90 undergraduate quarter credits (or equivalent) into a Kaplan bachelor?s degree program. Kaplan is also extending a 10 percent tuition discount to all CSU alumni, faculty and staff.
"Columbia Southern University was established to support the educational needs of the adult learner," said Robert Mayes, Columbia Southern University President. "Our partnership with Kaplan University provides our students with one more option to take their education to the next level."
Alumni must be in good standing with CSU and complete all Kaplan admission requirements to take advantage of this partnership. Kaplan will complete a course-by-course review of all transfer credits submitted on official transcripts from CSU.
This is one of nine academic partnerships CSU has established to offer students and alumni a larger selection of degree programs to choose from. CSU also holds partnerships with Capella University, University of North Alabama, University of West Alabama, University of West Florida, Alabama Fire College, Eastern Iowa Community College District, Northcentral University, South Central College and Trinidad State Junior College.
CSU is licensed by the Alabama Department of Postsecondary Education and is accredited by the Distance Education and Training Council (DETC) to offer associate, bachelor, master and doctorate degrees. DETC is listed by the U.S. Department of Education as a nationally recognized accrediting agency. As an accredited, degree-granting member of the DETC, CSU is also an institutional member of the Council of Higher Education Accreditation.
