Life Experience

Get credit for what you have and are doing!

At Mid-America Christian University, we value our working adult students. Many of our adult students have a wealth of job experience, but need to earn their degree for a job promotion or to finish a goal they have started.

As you begin your college education at MACU, you have a tremendous opportunity to capitalize on what you have learned through personal experience. You can earn up to 30 hours of college credit by applying what you already know! You can get the most from your life experience with the Prior Learning Program at MACU!

Many adults have acquired measurable, college-level learning which can be assessed and applied toward a degree program. Real-world knowledge comes from real-life experience. You may be able to translate what you have learned through work, community or volunteer activities into undergraduate college credit, saving you time and money as you pursue your education goals.

Take our 3-MINUTE survey to see how you can SAVE TIME & MONEY toward college!

The knowledge you attained before coming to MACU can help you shorten the amount of time it takes to complete your degree and save you thousands of dollars!
