Advance in your career and life with a
Regents Bachelor of Arts!

Equivalent to a Bachelor of Arts, a Regents Bachelor of Arts degree gives you the foundation to start a new career in a field that requires a bachelor’s degree or to pursue a pay increase or promotion in your current career. You can even earn college credit for professional work experience, allowing you to graduate even faster. If graduate school is your goal, we can design a course plan that will best prepare you to earn direct entrance into one of many associated WVU master’s programs.

Tara Turley

When I graduated high school, I chose to forgo college and started a career at a large corporation. I worked there for 13 years intending to retire, but they laid me off in 2011. I had no formal education nor a plan B, so I really didn’t know what to do. Determined not to be defeated and to show my daughters the power of tenacity, I entered a vocational program in electrical technology and became an electrician. However, I still wanted to pursue my degree so that I would always have something that no one could ever take away from me again.  I chose to enroll in the RBA program because it was a perfect fit for my life, and I knew I could tailor it to suit my former life experiences as well as use credits from the 5 year electrical apprenticeship I am about to finish up through the National Joint Apprenticeship Training Alliance.

I first enrolled at West Virginia University in the late 1990s. I loved the school, but at that time I did not have any clear career goals. I dropped out and then moved to South Florida. While I was there, I started working in the real estate industry. It is a field where you do not need a degree to get started...especially at that time. But when the housing bubble burst in 2008, I needed to address the holes in my education and come up with a long term plan. The RBA program was able to use my past WVU credits, credits from my associates degree, and credits from my professional credentials toward the program. I used my remaining RBA requirements to take the necessary prerequisites for graduate school. After earning my RBA degree, I was accepted into a part-time MBA program with a focus in marketing and earned that degree 3 years later.
