Nontraditional credit may be awarded to MSMCS students who demonstrate mastery of knowledge or skills that were acquired outside of an accredited college or university and place into an advanced language course. Nontraditional credit evaluations are available for accepted degree-seeking UAA students. Credit is granted for coursework for which students show documented achievement of equivalent outcomes. UAA faculty have evaluated specific training programs, exams and certifications in a number of disciplines and have determined that those listed below may result in the award of academic credit. The discipline and number of credits are established by the faculty and reviewed on a regular basis. Use of nontraditional credit to complete certificate or degree requirements may be limited; students should see their academic advisor for more information.
