It is designed to give working adults an accelerated route to a bachelor’s degree by earning credit for work experience, non-collegiate instruction and test scores. You may receive:

  • up to 24 semester hours for work/life experience
  • up to 30 semester hours for training conducted by business or industry if recognized by the American Council on Education
  • an unlimited number of hours from the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES)
