Life Experience Credits


Universities do not award credit for experience, but rather for college-level learning that has resulted from life experience. The learning must be documented and/or demonstrated in order to be considered for credit.

Many students have several years of work experience, making it quite possible that this work experience has resulted in college-level learning. By evaluating the life experience of the applicant, Aidan University gives students an opportunity to document and potentially receive academic credit for credit-worthy skills and/or knowledge gained outside the classroom environment. Ministry-related activity (as either a lay- person or a member of the clergy), military service and training, professional development seminars, volunteer service, independent or self-directed study, and work-related training are examples of experiences that may be considered for evaluation.  Undergraduate students may be eligible for advanced standing based upon life experience credit upon completion of an examination. Life experience credit is available at the undergraduate level only. When applying for admission, those students who desire consideration for advanced standing should request this in their cover letter. All information submitted for life experience credit must be verifiable. Potential credit for experiential learning is limited to a maximum of 15 credit hours and is available on the undergraduate level (AA, BA).


Transcripts


A transcript contains all essential academic data such as the courses, grades, credits awarded, degree (with major), and graduation date.   


Official Transcript

This transcript has the seal of Aidan University, date, and an appropriate signature for students who have attended this institution. These are only issued directly to other institutions, colleges, or employers.


The current fee for each official transcript is $8.00. Official transcripts can only be released upon receipt of official transcripts from previous learning institutions or official letters of confirmation.


Unofficial Student Transcript

It is dated, but is without the University seal. When all coursework has been completed and all financial obligations are fulfilled, one (1) unofficial transcript will be available at no charge.

The current fee for each subsequent unofficial transcript is $5.00. Unofficial transcripts can only be released upon receipt of official transcripts from previous learning institutions or official letters of confirmation.


Neither official nor unofficial transcripts will be issued for a student who has failed to meet all his/her financial obligations to Aidan University.
