TROY helping students affected by Argosy University closure

March 14, 2019

Troy University is rolling out a plan to ease the transfer process for Argosy University students looking to continue their education after Argosy’s recent closure.

The Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, TROY’s regional accrediting agency, has asked for assistance on behalf of the thousands of students affected by the closure of Argosy, and TROY is answering the call.

“These students have been put in a difficult situation, but we feel that, for many of them, Troy University is the right place for them to continue their education,” said TROY Chancellor Dr. Jack Hawkins, Jr. “TROY has been educating students for more than 130 years, and we think our tradition of academic excellence can benefit these students, so we want to do what we can to help them become part of the TROY family.”

The University is offering 20 scholarships, each valued at $1,000, to new students transferring from Argosy.

All Argosy students will receive an accelerated review of their transfer credits and an application fee waiver to help them avoid a delay in pursuing their degrees.

Argosy held the same Council for Accreditation of Counseling and Related Educational Programs accreditation that TROY holds, thus making it aligned with TROY’s specialized accreditation standards.

As a result, counseling students in good standing with Argosy may be eligible for up to 30 hours in transfer credit toward their graduate degrees, a number typically capped at 12.
