Education takes many forms, and in the Bachelor of Liberal Studies (BLS) program, we understand that our students have gained valuable knowledge outside the classroom. The Life/Work Experience 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 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.
Details about Portfolio Credit
- BLST 101: Portfolio Development is a one-credit course. The course is offered every fall and spring semester.
- Portfolios must be submitted within 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 90 semester credits into the BLS program, you are not eligible for portfolio credit.
Students are encouraged to review the catalog description of BLST 101: Portfolio Development and consider if they would benefit from a course assisting them in developing a portfolio that documents their learning gained through life and work for possible conversion to academic credit.
