Life can be challenging and even hectic, but you don't have to
put your career and educational goals on hold. The Regents Bachelor
of Arts (RBA) program helps you work around life's challenges so
you can earn a bachelor's degree.
And now, the RBA degree is even better. Many colleges and
universities in West Virginia are offering an enhanced version of
the program through an initiative called RBA Today. RBA Today
offers adults flexibility and choices, including:
- classes that are compressed into shorter time frames,
- the option to receive credit for life and work experience,
- the ability to take online, evening and weekend classes.
From the beginning, you will receive assistance from an RBA
professional who will help you create a plan to achieve your goals
and obtain your degree! The program is perfect for adults who have
completed some college classes, because credits you've earned in
the past can often count toward your degree - even if you've been
out of school for a long time.
You may even be able to count some of the knowledge you've
gained from work and life experiences toward college credit.
