Are you ready to finish what you started?

We understand that life can be challenging and even hectic, but we want you to know that you don’t have to put your career or educational goals on hold any longer.


The Regents Bachelor of Arts (RBA) program helps you work around life’s challenges, so you can earn a bachelor’s degree.

Motives to join the RBA program may be personal fulfillment, career enhancement, promises made, or simply wanting to be a better role model but the common factor of each participant is that they want to earn a college degree!

The RBA program is a nontraditional program designed for the adult student. The flexibility of the RBA program allows students to maximize their use of previous and transfer credit in completing their degree. The RBA is designed for degree completion and is not open to students who have already earned a regionally accredited bachelor’s degree.

The wide variety of available online courses makes it possible for many students to complete their degrees without ever taking classes on a Marshall University campus or center. For those who prefer to be in a traditional classroom setting, the Huntington and South Charleston campuses, Teays Valley Regional Center in Putnam County and the Mid-Ohio Valley Center in Mason County offer convenient places to take courses.

Contact us today to find out how you can apply previously earned college credits, knowledge gained from work and life experiences, certifications and more toward a bachelor degree at Marshall University. You may be closer to earning a four-year college degree than you think.
