"At forty-four I found myself a candidate for promotion at my company. However, a bachelor's degree was a requirement and I had never attended college before. Even though my employer paid for my education, completing a four year degree part-time seemed impossible to me.
By using Regis' Portfolio and Testing options, I earned over half of my degree gaining 73 credits for knowledge I acquired through years of work and life experiences. This allowed me to concentrate on the core of my business studies, while saving over three years time. Now I have that promotion and the time needed to complete my MBA studies at Regis, so I won't miss my next career opportunity."

"Returning to school after years of raising a family and working was very intimidating for me. Through the portfolio program, I improved my writing skills and gained self-confidence by recognizing and validating what I had already learned! I was awarded the full 45 credit hours in Portfolio for course work as varied as Computer Science, Advanced First Aid and CPR and Successful Parenting. The portfolio process of identifying and describing learning experiences provided me with a strong framework to excel in my other course work."
Gayla O'Fallon, Martin & Associates
"I can't say enough good things about the Portfolio program at Regis University. By receiving college credit for my life's learning experiences, I was able to accelerate my undergraduate degree by eight months.
Portfolio credits saved me countless classroom hours and thousands of tuition dollars. I created seven essays on subjects ranging from adult spiritual life and growth to the fundamentals of professional sales and marketing.
I found the process of evaluating my own personal, spiritual, and professional learning in terms of college courses to be invigorating. I never realized how much I really knew about so many subjects until I sat down to analyze my skills and knowledge! I was given personalized support and guidance from a wonderfully talented instructor who continually encouraged me to dig deeper into myself and produce quality, college-level work. I owe so much to Regis University and the portfolio process."
