What is "Nontraditional Education?"
In 1834 the University of London became the first institution of higher learning to offer degrees that did not require classroom attendance. Today, that same concept is called "Nontraditional" Education.

Within our society there are legions of productive individuals who have no formal university education. Others found it necessary to drop out of college prior to obtaining the degree they desired.

Many of these people have acquired an extensive education through life experiences and some have become experts in their respective fields and professions. What is common among many of these individuals, and what frequently limits their personal and professional growth, is the lack of formal educational credentials. However, for most adults, returning to the classroom to obtain these credentials is virtually impossible.

If you find yourself among this group or if you simply want a degree for personal satisfaction, a nontraditional (external) degree may be the answer. In general, external degrees can be obtained without attending classes, and for many, in a relatively short period of time.

Nontraditional Fits Today's Busy Professionals
Nontraditional education is an honest and fully legal recognized method of obtaining a degree. Possessing such a degree has literally changed the lives of thousands of people around the world. However, all external degrees, are not alike.

If our evaluation finds you are qualified for a nontraditional degree (based on your life and work experience) you will be provided a degree program the University feels will best meet your specific needs. On the other hand, if our evaluation finds you are not qualified for a nontraditional degree (based on your life and work experience) you will be referred to a traditional school that most likely will be able to assist you in completing your degree.
