Earn College Credit for Your Life Experience

Many online programs now offer college credit for life experience. What does this mean? Basically, you can use skills that you've learned in your life through work, the military, or other experiences and turn them into life experience credits. These credits will reduce the amount of time needed to complete your online courses so you can get your degree in no time.

Different colleges and universities offer different life experience college credit, so it's worth searching several programs to determine which one will benefit you the most. It's also important to ensure that it's a fully accredited program that can give you a proper degree or certificate and not a scam to take your money.

Demonstrating Knowledge for Life Experience Credit

You will have to prove that you have sufficient knowledge to get this life credit, but there are a variety of ways to do this. Sometimes it will mean taking an exam, or providing a reference letter from a previous employer, military supervisor, or community service organization.

Any previously obtained certificates might count, as well as any books or articles you've published. It's worth checking with your individual program to discuss what you have done in your past that qualifies you for credit for life experience.

All of this removes one major problem adults come across when seeking to continue their education ' the amount of time involved.

Now that reputable universities and institutions have begun offering college credit for life experiences, it can significantly reduce the amount of time you must spend on your studies. And it may allow you to bypass beginner-level courses that teach skills you've already learned in life.

Not all education occurs in a university setting. Colleges and universities that give college credit for life experience recognize this fact and greatly aids adult learners in continuing their formal education.
