Regents Bachelor of Arts
Life can be challenging and even hectic, but you don’t have to put your career and educational goals on hold. The Regents Bachelor of Arts (R.B.A.) program helps you work around life’s challenges so you can earn a bachelor’s degree. Non-West Virginia residents may qualify for a *GRANT of up to $1,200 per three credits.
And now, the R.B.A. degree is even better. Many colleges and universities in West Virginia are offering an enhanced version of the program through an initiative called R.B.A. Today. R.B.A. Today offers adults flexibility and choices, including:
- classes that are compressed into shorter time frames
- the option to receive credit for life and work experience
- the ability to take online and evening classes, and
- take classes that are offered in both Martinsburg and Shepherdstown.
From the beginning, you will receive assistance from an R.B.A. professional who will help you create a plan to achieve your goals and obtain your degree! The program is perfect for adults who have completed some college classes, because credits you’ve earned in the past can often count toward your degree–even if you’ve been out of school for a long time.
You may even be able to count some of the knowledge you’ve gained from work and life experiences toward college credit. There’s never been a better time to go back to school, but you’ve got to take the first step.
