I have 42 credits of previous college credit, maybe more that may be
transferable, but 42 that was accepted by University of Phoenix.
I'm looking to get a BA/BS in one of the buisiness fields. I also
have lots of experience from work that may apply, such as sales, finance,
managerial, import/export, sales, purchasing, and so on. I've also owned my
own small business. I don't think I could jump right into the test taking
and pass, I'll have to study and/or learn some of the coursework, also, I'm
not sure what kind of passing scores I could produce.
What do you suggest I do? How do I get Started? How many credits can
be earned by proven experience, what experience is acceptable, and how do I
go about proving my experience? I'd really like to get this done as fast as
credit applicable to the Business major is subject to a twenty year time
limit. The credit must have been either awarded by a US regionally
accredited institution, or have been evaluated and recommended by ACE. or,
in the case of credit awarded by a foreign institution, have been evaluated
for equivalency by a designated credential evaluator.
Note that the
University of Phoenix accepts certain credit awarded by DETC accredited
schools. None of the Big Three will accept such credit on the basis of the
awarding institutionís DETC accreditation.
With respect to
your professional experience, you may be able to earn credit for it via
portfolio assessment. How to get started? Read BA in 4 Weeks, for a
detailed exposition process and method.
