    Credit for work experience and college credits
    Hello,
    I have received associates degree, taken masters level courses and received numerous amounts of professional training considered as credit hours.
    Is there anyplace that is accredited and/or recognized that can equivilate this to a degree for me?
    Thanks,
    Jamie

    Master's level is a relative term. Who says they are Master's level? We need some more info if we are to give you any real advice.

    Your classes sound like they are not part of an approved program so I don't believe any university would even think of pulling them together and calling it a degree. It sounds like you have not reached a BA or BS yet so MS classes aren't going to count for anything.

    Masters Level Courses are courses that I took in Australia at an accredited university (Deakin University). I took 80 credit hours of online work as a requirement for my job. I also have over 80 credit hours from Oakton Community College, which is also accredited. With my job, I have participated in 200 hours of training (documented). Certainly, there must be someplace that can say... you have an undergraduate degree??

    Gain credits for coursework taken
    Hello,
    I have asked this in another forum, but didn't get my point across. I am a U.S. citizen who has taken courses in America and overseas. In addition I have received a lot of professional education. Here is the breakdown

    Oakton Community College: 80 hours of credit work
    Deakin University: 80 hours of credit work
    Professional training: 200 hours of credit work

    Is there anyplace that is registered or accredited that can look at these transcripts and say... this person has the equivalent of a Bachelors in Science??

    On the whole any college offering degrees based on work experience are pulling a fast one and are NOT accredited any where at all.
    They aren't worth the paper they are written on.

    Please refer to THS STICKY

    Now rather than trying to get a meaningless degree why not get a raft of professional qualifications?

    Have you tried visiting a college or university counselor and having them evaluate what you have? Enroll for the BS and just take whatever else is needed to complete it.

    My husband got credit for many courses he took in the Navy, however some courses were not credited since they did not pertain to his major.
