The partnership between the two online institutions signifies greater educational opportunities for transfer, including direct acceptance into graduate school.

Lenexa, Kan. – April 8, 2015 –Grantham University and Allied American University, both online accredited colleges, have signed an articulation agreement allowing students to seamlessly transfer between the two universities.

“It’s about partnering with the right institutions,” said Grantham Vice President for University Partnerships, Dr. Marilyn Bartels. “We are continually looking at new ways to help students earn the degree they need to meet their individual goals. This agreement exemplifies that effort by allowing students to continue their education and transfer easily into a graduate program.”

As part of the agreement, all degrees earned in business administration, criminal justice and healthcare from Allied American University will be accepted directly into graduate programs at Grantham University should students desire to pursue a higher degree.  Also, students who earn a certificate can transfer their credits into degree programs not offered by Allied American University. Eligible students, staff and faculty who are interested in continuing their education will receive lower tuition rates for master’s degree programs.

“This agreement represents a lot of hard work. We’re really excited about this opportunity and looking forward to where we can go from here,” said Allied American University Interim President and CEO, Dr. Bill Luton.

“This partnership provides a pathway for our students to continue their education by attaining a graduate degree,” adds Allied American University Provost, Dr. Bonny Nickle. “AAU believes that cooperative programs and partnerships with other institutions are highly beneficial to our students. Articulation with Grantham speaks volumes about the credibility and integrity of our academic degree programs.”
