Each course is 4 modules.  You can only do one module within each course at a time.  However, it *could* be possible to simultaneously work on two modules with each module being from a different course.  The only caveat there would be that the the first course you're working on could not be a pre-requisite for the second course.  

With that said, it's definitely at your own pace and if you want to register for 5-6 modules per term, that's allowable.  You can also add more modules within the term if you've already finished the modules you had previously registered for.


6 week terms so 6 modules is just 1 module per week. Can I u do 10-15 modules per week with suggestions??

Hi everyone, 

I used the attached to budget my time as well as track current progress. Column E is the budget term and F is actual term completed. I was able to complete the program in 5 terms. The schedule details each class and what it took to complete the unit. I did not include hours. Figure 5-10 hours a unit on average. Here are some highlights:

Averaged 12 units per six week term. 
50,000+ words across 265 pages (title and reference included)
72 power point slides (with speaker notes and voice recording)
15 problem sets (accounting, finance and statistics)

Keys to success

1. Accounting courses - Pay particular attention to the required sub categories that are required to complete the unit. For instance, the grading rubric will say that you need only complete 4 sub competency assignments to complete the unit. However, there are 8 in the simulation. I wasted time completing the other four when I could have moved on. This is especially frustrating when the simulation will not allow you to move on until the section is complete. 
2. I made sure that I had four courses open at all times. This ensured that I could be working on a class (unit) while others were being graded. There was very little down time for grading. 
3. In relation to 2 above, the flow of submitting assignments for grading is crucial. When an assignment is submitted, professors have 24 hours to grade. It takes another 24 hours for the grade to be posted to your account and then the next class in succession is available to open. Therefore there is 48 hours where, if you only had one class open, you would lose due to downtime.  

Hope this helps.

https://www.ocregister.com/2019/02/28/a-...aw-school/ Degree is in the Picture slideshow, Picture 2. Says "Purdue University Global"

Also some of these reviews say these credits earned here are not transferrable to other universities (citing similar troubles like ITT Tech)

Oof. This would obviously be a huge red mark for those who want to continue to a Doctorate after. Where are these reviews?

I'd also be interested to see these reviews.  

I had previously explored the idea of pursuing a graduate certificate in Business Analytics from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.  In checking their course equivalency for transfer credit, they have quite a few courses from Purdue Global that have been evaluated for credit.  Granted, these courses are at the undergraduate level, but there is at least some documented information readily available that pertains to transferring credits from Purdue Global.

https://admissions.unl.edu/nebraska/equi...-campuses/

As far as the graduate level, Purdue West Lafayette does, in fact, have an articulation agreement with Purdue Global to transfer credits from Purdue Global to Purdue while in the pursuit of a Masters degree.  This only applies to one specific program, but I suspect most programs would have the transfer credits evaluated on a case by case basis.  

https://www.purdue.edu/gradschool/prospe...eement.pdf

Obviously, this is not a comprehensive list of schools, but if the main campuses of Nebraska and Purdue are accepting Purdue Global courses as transfer credits at both the undergraduate and graduate level, it would not surprise me to see a large number of other schools, with varying degrees of reputation, doing the same.

This was awesome.  Thank you for posting it.  I'm am in the Bachelors program right now and I will be adopting your budget template.  I'm just winging it ATM but this looks like this will help keep me more organized.
