How do I get started? top of page

  • Submit documentation of successful completion

    Students should submit this form to the Building Performance Institute, 107 Hermes Road, Suite 210 Malta, New York 12020. BPI will then send the University a letter verifying the student's successful completion of the credential or achievement.


Can I transfer APR credit to another institution? top of page

If you are seeking to transfer the APR credits to another college, the decision whether or not to accept these credits in transfer rests with that college. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the receiving institution's academic policy will allow transfer of each credit. Thomas Edison State University offers a non-degree service called Individual Learning Account that may be helpful.
