The online program serves adult students who are seeking to complete a bachelor’s degree in a format that fits their life and schedule. The online program operates on an accelerated schedule of six alternating seven- and eight-week terms throughout the year, taught online.
To validate professional competencies working adults accumulate outside the classroom, these students may earn up to 30 credits for work experience through the portfolio credit process. Students pursuing portfolio credits can meet with the assigned academic advisor or enroll in CAEL 100 to develop a portfolio demonstrating the required learning outcomes for the course in which the student is seeking to receive portfolio credit. Approved general education courses from Straighterline will also be accepted for transfer credit.
Credit hours are earned through distance learning instruction and transfer credits. At the bachelor’s level, certain military service course credits (DANTES), CLEP (College Level Examination Program), ACE (American Council on Education), FDLE (Florida Department of Law Enforcement), Series 7 License and other professional certifications may qualify for academic credit. Students with transfer credits will receive a credit evaluation prior to enrolling.
