Baptist Bible Seminary

Prior Learning Experience

Your life and ministry experience have given you valuable hands-on training that may coincide with your seminary education. At BBS, we will work with you to make your significant life experiences count toward your master's degree.

We will evaluate your unique circumstances and determine how your experience can translate into academic credits. Considering your transfer credits and testing credits, we will complete an assessment of prior learning.

The Portfolio Assessment process helps you organize and submit your life experiences for potential academic credit. Students may register for Portfolio Assessment, PA800, and prepare a professional portfolio to be evaluated for credit.

The following resources can assist you in understanding this process:
