There is considerable flexibility in how, when, and where course requirements are met: students may earn credit through regular courses; credit by exam; when available through TV and satellite courses, Internet-based courses, correspondence courses; and through writing portfolios. (See College Equivalent Credit section in this handbook).
The Regents B.A. Program was created by the West Virginia State Board of Regents in 1975. Although that Board no longer exists, the degree program continues in the 10 public college and universities in the state: Shepherd, West Virginia University, Bluefield, Concord, Glenville, WVIT, West Liberty, Fairmont, West Virginia State, and Marshall University. (Note: Marshall University and West Virginia University currently have R.B.A. programs with an emphasis.)
More than 15,000 students have obtained Regents B.A. Degrees statewide since the program's inception. Shepherd University alone has had more than 1,400 graduates. R.B.A. students have full access to the many intellectual and creative resources of Shepherd University.
