The Regents Bachelor of Arts, offered by the College of Education and Human Services, is a popular option for adult learners who want to return to school. The RBA undergraduate program is designed for working adults who want to complete their college degree. The program is accessible, responsive and purpose-built with the nontraditional learner in mind. It offers an opportunity to gain credits for work and life experiences, and allows students to tailor their academic careers to meet their individual needs. WVU offers adult learners, those who have been out of high school at least four years, the flexibility of completing this degree online.
What’s unique about the degree is the student’s ability to package together previously earned credits, online classes, and a portfolio of real world experience to create a unique degree. A portfolio is written justification and documentation of the student’s request to earn college equivalency credit. WVU offers an online class in RBA portfolio development to guide students through the process.
Minimum cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 on a 4.0 scale.
