Military FAQs

Please note certain degree programs may have specific programmatic admissions requirements that must be met.

  • No, you get to choose when and where to log in for participation in your class, which allows you to fit your class requirements into your busy schedule. Your online classroom takes place in an asynchronous environment, which means that you are free to participate at your own pace, so long as you meet the minimum attendance and academic participation requirements for your courses.

    Some courses have live learning (synchronous) sessions where attendance is highly encouraged. These sessions take place in Zoom at designated dates and time. If you cannot attend a live learning session contact your faculty member to discuss alternative accommodations including watching a recorded session.

  • Students taking online courses at the University of Arizona Global Campus are expected to attend every week of the course. Attendance is defined as posting in a graded discussion forum or submitting a written assignment, journal entry, quiz, or exam. In most cases, you should expect to academically participate in your course at least two times per week. Failure to meet academic participation requirements may negatively impact an assignment or course grade. 

    In addition, you must meet minimum attendance requirements. Students enrolled in undergraduate introductory courses must attend at least once in any seven consecutive day period. Students enrolled in non-introductory courses must attend at least once in any fourteen consecutive day period in order to avoid being administratively withdrawn.

    There are three ways to apply military transfer credits toward your degree program. 1) Transfer up to 75 credits** from approved national testing programs such as CLEP (College Level Exam Program) and DSST (DANTES Subject Standardized Tests). 2) Military and training experience is of great value and may also help you get closer to a degree. Transfer up to 75 military credits** to UAGC where experience in the military is recognized. 3) Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) allows you to earn credit for college-level learning that occurs outside a traditional classroom.

    ** Transferring credits is always subject to the UAGC transfer credit policies and requires the submission of official transcripts. The official transcripts will be evaluated to determine the credits that will officially apply toward a UAGC degree program.
