with the Capstone Institute of Mortgage and Finance. This agreement

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

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.
