You must contact the University of Phoenix Office of the Registrar to inquire about their transfer credit policies and regulations. Typically, national accreditation agency criteria is not at the same standard as regional accreditation agencies. Most colleges that I am familiar with, including the one I am employed at, do not accept credits in transfer from institutions that have a national accreditation.

There are a great many differences in collegedegrees; however, one of the most noticeable differences is accreditation. If a degree is nationally accredited, it has some value but may not transfer to other colleges. If it is Regionally credited, it has far more value and is extremely likely to transfer to any college of your choosing. Be careful when choosing to attend a college or university. It is far wiser to choose a school that is regionally accredited vs. one that is nationally accredited. Choose wisely!

It depends on the accreditation of the college. I would recommend an regionally accredited college over an nationally accredited college. Tuition would be the other factor....

It is a nationally accredited school but not regionally. Having a regional accreitation has more weight than a national one.
