What you already know may be worth college credit. Adults continually learn new skills in many situations-on the job, through travel, reading, volunteering and special interests. With a goal of preparing a more highly trained West Virginian citizenry to meet our workforce and civic needs and compete in the 21st-century job market with advanced and hands-on skills, West Virginia two year state colleges are reaching out with this integrated, statewide associate degree.
New River is here to help you attain your dream of completing college by offering this degree. This degree (click here to review requirements on page 101) can give you a jump start to an associate degree by completing a portfolio from prior work and life experiences. The portfolio process can validate your college level learning experiences and credentials as well as save precious time. The portfolio process is convenient, flexible and cost effective. If you feel you are a good candidate to prepare a work/life experience portfolio, schedule an appointment with the BOG degree program coordinator for an advising interview.
