Capstone teams with University of PhoenixMortgagePress.comUniversity of Phoenix, Capstone Institute of Mortgage and Finance, online education, mortgage industry training The University of Phoenix has signed an articulation agreement with the Capstone Institute of Mortgage and Finance. This agreement allows Capstone students to pursue a variety of degree opportunities at any of the University of Phoenixs 144 campuses and learning centers located throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico and Canada, or via the Internet. Capstone has more than 27 years of experience as a provider of targeted training for mortgage lenders, said Shane Clem, vice president and director of the Georgia campuses for University of Phoenix. We are pleased to offer an articulation agreement of this magnitude for their students. Courses provided at the Capstone Institute have been assessed for college credit by the University of Phoenix, so students may use these courses to complete a bachelors degree at the university. For the past 20 years, Capstone has graduated approximately 300 students per month. "Continuing education, whether for the mortgage field or otherwise is important for the continuing success of an individual's personal and professional life, said Maggie Morgan, Capstones marketing manager. The assessment agreement between Capstone and University of Phoenix is a win-win for both institutions and their graduates. It increases the value of both programs and offers additional opportunities for education." University of Phoenix students must be working adults at least 18 years of age and meet program admission requirements. Students take one course at a time, each course lasting five to six weeks, rather than the typical 12-week semester. This adult-centered schedule enables students to complete their undergraduate degree requirements in three to four years and their graduate degree in about two years, without putting their jobs on hold to do so.
