Are you missing academic credit, but have life experience?

At William James College we understand that not all learning takes place in a classroom. Many of our students have gained considerable knowledge from their experience working in the field of human services. Students may be able to earn college credits toward their Bachelor of Arts degree by using the knowledge acquired through life experiences, including volunteering, employment, seminars, workshops, completion of non-credit courses, military training, or cultural experiences.
