Articulation Agreement with University of Phoenix for Elective Credits
February 2007: Many Blackstone students are life-long learners, eager to continue their education after they have received their diploma. Under a new articulation agreement between Blackstone Career Institute (BCI) and the University of Phoenix, graduates of Blackstone diploma and certificate programs can be assured of receiving elective credits that they can apply towards a degree program. Most study units in the Blackstone Legal Assistant/Paralegal program qualify for 2.5 elective credits and advanced paralegal courses qualify for 2 elective credits. Allied health study units can also be applied towards elective credits for a degree program. For details on how many credits may be awarded for each Blackstone study unit, review the credit recommendation guide posted in the University of Phoenix website’s Prior Learning Assessment Center.
Founded in 1976, the University of Phoenix specializes in adult education and offers many online and site-based degree programs, including associate and/or bachelor’s degrees in criminal justice, general studies, business, psychology, and information technology. Like Blackstone, the University of Phoenix offers convenient distance education opportunities for those who are working, raising a family or juggling other responsibilities.
