Concordia University Irvine is the latest school to formally accept transfer credits from education content provider Straighterline. The partnership will allow students at the Southern California Christian college to use Straighterline’s entry-level college courses as well as students who are taking courses from Straighterline to have additional options to continue their education.
The decision is being billed as a way to reduce the cost burden for Concordia University Irvine students by providing them with the ability to move through 42 lower division courses as quickly or slowly as they like.
Concordia University Irvine is a 40-year-old, faith-based institution that is regionally accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and specifically accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, the Commission on Accreditation of Athletic Training Education, and the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing.
Straighterline’s courses are evaluated and recommended by the American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service and are honored by 250 colleges across the country.
