High School Graduates

In order to be admitted to the RBA program, you must have graduated from high school at least four years prior to enrolling. For example, a student graduating from high school in June 2006 would be eligible for admission to the Regents program beginning July 2010.

GED Students

Students who have passed a high school equivalency examination are eligible for admission four years after their high school class graduated.

Transfer Students

Students may transfer into the RBA program from other institutions or from other majors within WVU if they are eligible. For more information on transfer eligibility requirements, please contact our advisors at or 304-293-5441.

NOTE: Students cannot double major with the Regents Bachelor of Arts degree. Students with accredited baccalaureate degrees are not eligible for the Regents Bachelor of Arts degree. 

Credit For Prior Learning and Experience

If you have gained skills, professional certificates, licenses, etc., you can develop a portfolio to petition for College Equivalent Credits (CECs) or have professional licenses and certificates reviewed to determine whether or not they have credit value. Previous and current work experience may also be applied toward credit, upon review. To learn more, please visit the  Credit For Prior Learning page. 

"F" Forgiveness Policy

The RBA "F" Forgiveness policy allows a student to have all failing grades obtained while previously attending college (from at least four years prior to entering the RBA program) to not be factored into the calculation of their GPA. To learn more, please visit our "F" Forgiveness Policy page.
