Articulation agreements are formal arrangements between CFNI and accredited colleges and universities guaranteeing acceptance and transfer of CFNI credits. As a unaccredited institution, we felt it was important to ensure that our students who desire to continue their education will be able to do so without losing the academic ground they have gained at CFNI. Therefore, our partner schools have committed to pre-determined numbers of credits that will transfer into their respective programs. The degree program and credit transfer amount can vary depending on the school, but credit transfers will typically be between 39-90 credit hours.

Co-enrollment programs are an additional option with partner schools that provide the opportunity for students to enroll with and earn credits in the respective institution at the same time that they are studying at CFNI. This provides students an opportunity to complete their accredited bachelor’s degree while also completing their degree with CFNI. Only GCU and DBU currently have co-enrollment programs with CFNI.
