ChildCare Education Institute Announces Articulation Agreement with University of Phoenix

ChildCare Education Institute (CCEI), a nationally accredited distance education institution dedicated exclusively to the child care industry, is proud to announce an 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 866.440.4707 or visit the University of Phoenix 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 child care 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.
