Regents Bachelor of Arts
RBA (Regents Bachelor of Arts) degree is an innovative baccalaureate designed
for adult students. The basic principle underlying the degree is that credit
is awarded for what students know regardless of how that knowledge was attained.
The program differs from other bachelor degrees in that
RBA students may earn college-equivalent credit for selected work and
life experiences which can be equated to college courses. The
RBA student faces the realities of career demands, family obligations,
and financial pressures, which the
RBA Program recognizes and attempts to remove the obstacles that preclude
non-traditional, adult students from attending college. A flexible schedule with
evening and online courses helps
RBA students continue to work full-time and be a major part of family
life while still progressing towards a bachelor’s degree.
