RBA for Veterans

The RBA degree differs from other bachelor degrees in that Regents students may earn  credit for prior learning for selected work and life experiences which can be equated to college courses. Veterans can especially benefit from the RBA program because many of the skills learned in the armed services can transfer into credit through the American Council on Education. The RBA program, with its special design for non-traditional students, can take the skills veterans have learned serving their country and put those skills towards serving themselves in obtaining a college degree.
