ADMISSIONS

Admission and retention requirements are the same as for other degree programs except that students are not eligible for admission into the RBA program until at least four years after graduation from high school. You can check out general admission requirements here.

Students may not be enrolled simultaneously in the RBA program and another college degree program, and students who have already earned a bachelor’s degree are not eligible for the program.

All passing grades from other accredited colleges, plus passing grades on CLEP, DSST and other college-level tests, will be accepted.

COLLEGE EQUIVALENT CREDITS

Standard Awards

A standard award is the college credit WVU Tech awards for training certificates, registries, diplomas, or licenses – specialized courses or training you received outside of the college classroom. Students may also receive credit for CLEP and DSST tests. Each of these items can be awarded a specific, predetermined amount of credit. Contact the RBA Director for more information.

It should be noted that any subsequent college-level learning after acquiring these credentials may also carry college credit, but it will probably require portfolio evaluation.

Additional Credits

If they wish, students with substantial work experience may prepare a work-and-life experience portfolio to be evaluated by qualified faculty members for college-equivalent credits. Contact the RBA Director for more information.

Note: There is a $300 fee for experience portfolio evaluations, regardless of the amount of credits awarded. The same fee will be required each time students request subsequent evaluations.
