Associate Degree In Behavioral Science?
Q: I've been following this group for awhile, but haven't seen a posting for a
faq, so based on the name of the group, thought I'd ask my question here.
Unfortunately, I never finished my ba/s degree, I'm about 15+ credits short.
But I have been in the workplace and the computer industry for the past 18
years. Ideally, I'd like to find a college/university that:
is fully accredited (this is a "must be").
will accept my previous credits, even though the academic courses were taken
(from fully accredited institutions) in the mid 70's.
would give some kind of credit for my 18 years of "life experience" working
in the industry & field where my degree would be pertinent.
would allow any remaining courses that need to be taken to complete the
degree requirements to be taken via computer dial-in/internetting/etc.
A:Many schools will accept those credits, but, it seems, the best bet would be Regents College, part of the University of the State of New York. Fully accredited, Regents offers no classes itself, but will evaluate and accept credits taken at other institutions. Your existing credits seem to indicate that you could be eligible for an Associate's Degree already. I received my second Bachelor's there My educational experiences are similar to yours (and a few thousand others). I never finished my Bachelors twenty years ago. I did so last year through Thomas Edison State College. I picked up 30 semester hours by tests and 30 semester hours by portfolio assessment. (This is the process of awarding credit for work-related experience and learning) My degree is in Applied Science and Technology with a specialization in Computer Science and Technology. I think this is the right program for you. To receive more infoprmation about this program call 1-800-777-MIND. Explain to them that I have asked you to call re: the REGIS Bachelors Completion degree
