Complete your degree without repeating what you already learned


Your hard work counts. If you have at least 30 credit hours from an accredited institution, you can complete your bachelor’s degree with the University of North Texas (UNT). 

UNT’s 100% online Bachelor of Applied Arts and Sciences (B.A.A.S.) program is designed to streamline your path to a fully accredited bachelor’s degree by making it easy to transfer course work you’ve previously completed for technical, applied, or U.S. military credit. On average, UNT students only need 45 additional credits to complete their degree. You may even be able to have your prior learning on Coursera recognized for credit!

Complete your degree with a bachelor's that builds on your experience. Your prior learning on Coursera may be recognized for credit at UNT, a Tier One Public Research University

Seamlessly transfer up to 84 credit hours —including prior learning on Coursera— to complete your degree faster

The B.A.A.S. program at UNT accepts traditional common core credits earned from community colleges (American history, political science, English, etc.) or other universities. But what makes the B.A.A.S program so valuable is the opportunity to also transfer vocational, occupational, technical or workforce credits from courses at community colleges or technical institutions and apply them to complete your bachelor’s degree.

If you’ve completed one or more of the following programs on Coursera, you may also be eligible to have your prior learning recognized for credit for lower-level courses toward this degree. Recognition of prior learning can help you lower the cost and complete your degree faster based on the number of credits approved upon enrollment.¹

Worried about finding time for your degree? The UNT B.A.A.S program is offered online with 8-week asynchronous courses that are designed to adapt to your schedule and commitments. Students also have access to premium student support services including 1:1 academic advising, mentoring, career counseling, and more.

A UNT advisor can help you find the fastest path to completing your degree—and how your military experience and Coursera learning can be recognized for credit. Learn more by requesting information below or explore what students are saying about their experience.
