RBA for Veterans
The RBA degree differs from other bachelor degrees in that Regents students
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.
