Credit for Life Experience
Did you know that many universities will give you credit toward graduation requirements for your life or professional experiences? It’s true. Many of today’s adult students are returning from the workplace or military service. And just because you haven’t been in a classroom for a while doesn’t mean you haven’t learned valuable lessons.
For example, the University of Redlands School of Business potentially awards up to 30 units through faculty assessment of experiential learning. That represents 25% of the total credits required to earn your degree—which could translate into significant savings of time and tuition. So, if you’ve graduated with honors from the school of hard knocks, you deserve some credit—college credit—and now you can get it.
The Sustainable University of Redlands Farm (SURF) is a natural farm in its beginning stages, but already grows and sells fresh vegetables to Bon Appetit, the food management company on campus.
