Contact our RBA Coordinator
Contact our  RBA Coordinator to start sorting out your credit awards and plan your approach to your unique RBA path.

Students are eligible for admission into the RBA program 3 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.

With Registrar's approval, all passing grades from other accredited colleges, plus passing grades on CLEP, DSST, and other college-level tests, will be accepted toward the RBA degree.


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.
