As an adult learner, you bring a lifetime of experiences and knowledge to the classroom—from work and on-the-job training, volunteering, and military service to previous academic or professional development courses and independent study. At Walden, we value that knowledge and are committed to helping you earn credit for what you already know.

Walden’s Center for Degree Acceleration provides clear, personalized guidance on how to translate college-level knowledge into credits that can help you earn your degree more quickly and affordably.

At the Center for Degree Acceleration, representatives will personally guide you through a range of options that can help you transfer up to 75% of your required undergraduate credits or up to 50% of your required graduate credits. The Center for Degree Acceleration partners with trained admissions representatives who can offer a free transfer-of-credit evaluation.
