AFARAND offers qualified men and women the opportunity to earn their degree with Life Background /Education. Students who earn sufficient units with Life Background, to graduate, may apply for graduation immediately without taking additional classes.
Qualified Individuals who wish to use the Life Background Option may "Challenge" each class with Their Life Background /Education.
At most universities, the "Challenge" of a College Class is in the form of a student paying the tuition, taking the final examination for a course, and receiving college credit if the examination is passed. AFARAND uses "Authentic Assessment" instead of a written final examination. The Challenge, by Authentic Assessment, is in the form of a student's demonstrated ability and knowledge that may be verified from a resume and/or an applicant's work history.
· by using Life Background /Education
o AFARAND will grant credit for many things that you have learned by self-education, work experience, military experience or Life Background /Education that you could have learned in a college class.
o Transfer Students are welcome
· Why repeat classes "because your units are too old"
· Why repeat classes "because your new school refuses to accept more than a few units in transfer"
· Why delay graduation for another year "because graduation requirements have changed"
· Why continue to pay high tuition?
· Why delay receiving your Degree?
· Why continue to fight traffic and parking?
· Why tolerate boring classes that move at the rate of the slowest student?
· Why settle for someone else's idea of a meaningful curriculum?
· Why not make a move and study the things that interest you while earning your Degree?
· Or, earn your Degree immediately using your Life Background /Education
· Full Application and Evaluation of your Life Background /Education may be completed by telephone.
o Information provided during the telephone interview must be supported by verifiable documentation on a Resume, Transcripts, Licenses, State Credentials, Evidence of Military Service (ERB or ORB), Letters and/or other evidence as requested by the University.
