How to transfer credits

The transfer process is very simple and only consists of 4 key steps. Our representatives will guide you along the way to ensure that we complete the process successfully.
  1. Enroll in a course

    Enroll in one of our 6 for-credit courses. Provide the name of the school you are attending and the required information for Becker College to transfer the transcript towards your degree. Once you are enrolled, you will receive your Becker College student credential to Moodle where you can see all your course and instructor information and start learning.

  2. Request for pre-approval from your school

    As soon as you’ve enrolled in any of our classes, notify your school with the associated course code and syllabus any time before the start of class and up to 3 weeks after classes begin. We will provide you with an email template that you can use to contact your school.

  3. Begin your classes

    It typically takes your school 1-2 weeks to approve the transfer credit, and depending on the time of year, it could take as long as 2-3 weeks. During this time, just make sure to keep up with your weekly lectures and ensure that you are completing all quizzes and assignments on time.

Anthony Donoghue
Columbia University

About your instructor

Anthony obtained his higher education at University College Dublin in Dublin, Ireland. He completed his bachelors’ degree in Economics and Statistics and his masters’ degree in Statistics. He began his career in the health industry primarily working as a statistician for Pfizer Pharmaceuticals. A search for more fulfilling work began with him tutoring high-school students in statistics. From this experience his passion for teaching grew, leading to his first teaching position at Columbia University in the Fall of 2009.

At Columbia University, he has taught statistics and statistical thinking to every type of student; students from non-mathematical disciplines to students from heavy mathematical disciplines. He has taught freshmen through to seniors plus students from Columbia’s high school taking college-level courses. He has taught his courses in-person and on-line from small seminar type classes to classes with over a hundred students.

His approach to teaching statistics and statistical thinking stems from the fact that statistics is not a branch of mathematics. It is the application of mathematics to data in order to turn data into meaningful information. It is about learning how to reason with and understand variation in data in order to make good decisions about how the world works. Out of his dedication to this teaching philosophy grew his textbook titled “Statistical Thinking through Media Examples”. The textbook was written as a concise narrative where the statistical concepts are explained with minimal mathematical calculations through engaging and up-to-date media examples. The textbook lays down the foundations in statistical thinking, a necessary first step for any student interested in understanding how to question and reason with the world using data and statistics.

Together with a well-designed curriculum and course materials Anthony has successfully communicated and taught challenging statistical concepts to thousands of students during his teaching career. In his courses, the student gains a rigorous understanding of important statistical concepts and their application without too many mathematical calculations. The computer software takes care of the calculations so students can focus on what the calculations actually mean. The student leaves the course with the ability to question and critique the quality of data and research, plus a solid understanding of how to apply the core tools of statistical analysis

As a teacher and a writer, the challenge that Anthony Donoghue has put before himself is to effectively communicate statistical thinking concepts to as broad an audience as possible. In a world inundated with information and data, statistical thinking has become an absolute necessity. Statistical thinking enables the student to question the world of data for themselves so they can make better, more-informed and well-reasoned decisions. To succeed in this goal, Anthony will continue to be an innovator, searching for new ways to communicate these important statistical concepts to his students.

Student ratings

I had taken Statistics in high school and I wasn’t a big fan. However, I took this course because it was one of my degree requirements. From day 1, I could tell that the instructor was really passionate about what he was teaching. A few quizzes were really tough, but I was always able to get help from the TA and instructor outside of class hours. I strongly recommend this course to anyone who isn’t a math major.

I wanted a way to try out Statistics with no risk to my GPA. OneClass gave me the chance to take this course completely risk-free, and transfer the credit if I did well. The teaching assistant I had was really helpful throughout the semester and was so patient to help me through all of my questions. I thought the pace could have been a little faster but other than that, I would give this course a 5 out of 5.
Jian Z.
This was my second time taking Statistics and I really didn’t want to have to take it again for a third time. The instructor was really attentive to all of the students and he was able to adjust the pace of the class if he saw that everyone was falling behind. It was a completely different experience than when I took the course at my own school. The price was also a huge plus for me, knowing that I was only spending a fraction of what I would pay to take the course at my own school. If you’re a student on a budget and you’re paying your own way through college, there is absolutely no reason for you not to take this or any other course through OneClass.
