An Academic Alternative
A College Degree Earned in a "Non-Traditional" Way
For one reason or another deserving individuals have been denied
the education or degree they wanted. This situation can be improved
upon. Additional academic freedom is necessary in order to meet
the challenge of the '90's and beyond, far into the next millennium.
Let us provide alternatives...
The rapidly changing needs and skills of adults in today's workplace
has given rise to alternatives in education. The lack of flexibility
of certain traditional schools is being compensated for by non-traditional

At the UofB, we do not refer to our students as "average"

to determine what credit can be awarded for life experience. Most
traditional schools and even some non-traditional schools place
a limit on transfer credits. Why? After all...if you learned something

anyone think they can take that away from you? Yet that is precisely
what most schools will do. You will find no such policies
at the UofB. We are with you every step of the way on your path
to achieving the degree you want. The UofB and your Faculty Instruction

person," you may have some formal education, or none at all.
It makes no difference; you simply fill in the holes where you
must. This is explained later under Structure
of Degree Programs. For more information please call
