Credit for Life Experience?

Hmmm. I know hopeev­ey, cybr­cat, red­cub and Dee­dra of tri­adj are also “non-tra­di­tion­al col­lege stu­dents.” And jerseygirl1 just fin­ished up her degree. There’s prob­a­bly some­one I’ve missed, too.

Have any of you tried to get cred­it for life expe­ri­ence oth­er than by tak­ing some­thing like a CLEP test? Any­body else?

There must be some way to get use­ful cred­its out of being an old lady with much liv­ing behind her. I’ve worked in my major field (tech­ni­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions) before, and the oth­er tech work I’ve done should be use­ful as I’m con­sid­er­ing either a dual major or a minor in IT or com­put­er science.

My resume is at to give you an idea of the expe­ri­ence to which I’m refer­ring. That only goes back to 1990, because putting *all* of my work expe­ri­ence on a resume would make it ridicu­lous­ly long.
