  • How long does it take to get a decision on my application?

    Every university approaches the application process differently. Acceptance confirmation can vary from one to six months depending on the university. It may differ if you are applying for an undergraduate or graduate degree. Once you choose a home university, ask your campus coordinator about how that university processes applications.

  • Do I have to be admitted to all universities that participate in my program?

    No, you only need to be admitted to your home university. Your home university is where you enroll for classes, pay tuition and earn your degree or certificate. Even though you take courses from other universities in your program, you aren’t admitted separately to each university.

  • Does Great Plains IDEA accept transfer credits?

    In most cases, students can petition to have credits transferred to their home university through an approval process. Most universities limit the number of transfer credits for a program, including those taken as a non-degree student. If you have credits you are interested in transferring, contact your campus coordinator.
