Standardized Awards

Standardized Awards are allotments of college-equivalent credit awarded for specific types of experience that have already been evaluated. Awards generally comes in the form of professional certificates and licenses. For example, CPR certification equates to one lower-level credit hour. There is a flat fee of $300 to place credits from Standardized Awards onto academic transcripts.

Because Standardized Awards change over time, please check with the RBA Office to see if the award is still given and if new ones have been added. Standardized Awards require specific documentation, so please contact the RBA Office to determine what is required.
