Education takes many forms, and in the BLS office we understand that our students have gained valuable knowledge outside the classroom. The Life/Work Portfolio is a way to capitalize on that experience, and gain some credits for your prior training and experiences. Whether you had military service or community service, became an expert through specialized training or maybe you trained yourself via a hobby, the Portfolio development course will draw out these strengths and help you to organize them into a college-credit earning opportunity.
Here are the basics:
- BLST 101 is a one-credit course. The course is offered every fall and spring semester.
- Portfolios must be submitted within twelve (12) months of completion of the portfolio course.
- Currently the assessment fee for each portfolio is $100. This fee is waived for Veterans.**
- Portfolio credits are considered transfer credits. If you transfer ninety (90) semester credits into the BLS program, you are not eligible for portfolio credit.
