ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), an accredited distance education institution dedicated exclusively to the child care industry, is proud to announce its newly revised articulation agreement with University of Phoenix.
CCEI students who complete CDA, CDA Renewal, Director’s Certificate or FCCPC Certificate programs may articulate up to four (4) semester hours of Interdisciplinary/Elective Credit to University of Phoenix through the Prior Learning Assessment process. Additionally, students completing CCEI professional development may articulate their training as elective credit. Thirty (30) hours of training is equivalent to one (1) hour of elective credit. Students must submit an official CCEI transcript when applying to University of Phoenix.
To articulate credit into a University of Phoenix degree program, CCEI graduates should contact the Prior Learning Assessment department at 844.937.8679 or visit the University of Phoenix PLA website. Students interested in CCEI certificate programs or professional development courses should contact CCEI’s Admissions Department at 1.800.499.9907.
“As requirements for childcare staff increase, educational partnerships open up opportunities for early childhood teachers to meet their goals, which increasingly include a college degree,” said Maria Taylor, President and CEO of CCEI.
About University of Phoenix
John Sperling, PhD, a Cambridge-educated economist, professor and entrepreneur, founded University of Phoenix in 1976 in response to the changing needs of the workplace. It was part of his commitment to provide adults with the higher education they would need to fill those needs and for forty years, that’s exactly what we’ve done.
The times have changed, but our objective has remained the same – to help people enhance their lives through education. Together we will keep working to fulfill Dr. Sperling’s vision, improve the lives of our students and strengthen our communities.
We are proud to provide students access to quality education, ongoing support and a range of resources to help them succeed. Through innovation and dedication, we can continue to work toward a better tomorrow.
We invite you to learn about our University and see how we can help you pursue your education and follow your dreams.
