Frequently Asked Questions

How is SNHU’s College for America different from traditional college?
Unlike traditional programs that require you to complete a certain number of credits or courses, our College for America programs let you earn your degree by mastering specific skills (competencies) and completing real world projects instead of taking tests.
For example: students might complete personal projects for review by professional educators and subject matter experts. In addition to being provided with a full variety of educational resources, they can also make use of their existing knowledge and skills to demonstrate mastery of the required competency.
With our programs, you can work through learning materials as quickly or slowly as you like before submitting your project to subject matter experts for review. If your project shows that you have mastered the skill, you move on to the next requirement; if not, you can go back and re-submit your project as many times as it takes to master the skill. Many people find it to be the perfect fit for their learning style, offering flexibility and a list of mastered competencies they can show to employers.
How long will it take me to earn my degree?
Time to degree completion will vary, based on how fast you complete the required projects.
Will my current credits transfer?
SNHU’s College for America programs do not accept individual credits at this time. However, if students have a complete Associate degree that meets SNHU’s requirements, they may start immediately in a Bachelor’s program. An official credit evaluation is completed for each student as part of the application review process. Students receive their official transfer credit evaluation upon acceptance to the university. Associate degrees must be at the college level from an accredited institution and must meet SNHU’s Gen Ed requirements.
