Can sophia credit transfer to two different schools?
#1
Just a curious thought, Could I transfer my sophia credits to two different schools?

For example if I transfer to one school, but didnt like it and wanted to go to another with the same sophia credit, how would that work?

or if I wanted to use the same sophia credit for two different degree's.

Hmm, honestly, many people decide to change degrees or institutions over the course of a lifetime, so this is fine and is possible, depending on the institution you're going for. Here's an example, you do 60 credits in college but don't complete an associates, you go to another institution and transfer all 45 and complete 15 credits for the first associates. You then transfer those credits, all to the university of choice to do a Bachelors. Now, you can transfer those same credits towards another university for a second bachelors as long as the second bachelors has another set of credits for the major of your choice. You get to reuse all the credits from the previous two colleges for the general education and electives...

Short answer: Yes. Each school will apply its own criteria in evaluation of the credits that you transfer in from Sophia. Example - credits from Sophia and other ACE providers are accepted for the Pierpont AAS BOG. Those same credits are then applied to the Bachelors at UMPI, TESU, etc.

Schools may also have differing criteria in the case of a second degree - for example, some will waive all gen-eds and electives for a second degree, while others may only waive part of the electives.

Both responses answered my questions! Essentially, I am going to Indiana Tech for Construction Management since they are a partner school with Sophia/Study.

I also wanted to get a Project Management degree at UMPI instead of at my local community college since they both offer the same degree but I wanted to also transfer credit to UMPI using the same sophia credit

Both responses hit the the nail on the coffin

Something to be aware about. You can't use financial aid at 2 schools at the same time. Once you complete your first bachelor's degree, Pell Grants are gone forever. 

The PM degree at UMPI will be a bachelor's degree. Community colleges don't typically offer bachelor's degrees.

I do not recieve pell grants anyways, everything will be paid for out of pocket. I will be applying for tuition reimbursement through my work upon completion at Indiana Tech. UMPI would just be for personal achievement lol.

Also, suprisingly my community college offers 2 bachelors programs which is Project Management and Nursing. however, the classes get filled up to quick for project management, therefore I have to wait until the following semesters or wait for an opening to take the courses I need. I'd much rather do UMPI since I would be able to knock it out on my own pace.

If you're really looking to get a degree in project management you might want to look into a graduate program instead of another bachelor. For example Amberton has an MBA in PM, and one of the best things about their MBAs (aside from being affordable) is that the courses you take are concentration focused vs being more general business admin heavy. It is also a degree program that is both PMI and ACBSP accredited.

- MS Human Relations and Business - 2022
Thomas Edison State University (TESU)
- BSBA General Management - 2018
- ASNSM Computer Science -2018

Interesting, Wouldn't I need a project management bachelors prior to going for a masters program in project management?

No, not really, most Masters allow a bridge program or just require you to have the prerequisites completed, you don't have to have a specific degree... Basically, you should have some 'basic' business classes completed though and of course, the prerequisites of any Masters done before applying unless you're going the conditional acceptance route.

No existing PM degree needed, and since your bachelor would be in 'Construction Management' that covers Amberton's preferred 'bachelor in business' for their MBAs.
