Transfer Experience or Certificates into College Credit

Students often times underestimate the quantity and value of what they have learned during life. Doane University offers both a Portfolio Review Program, and Transfer Credit Pathways.

In a Portfolio Review, an adult or online undergraduate student writes about their experiences showing pre-existing mastery on the curriculum subject. Upon approval, students will only pay 50% tuition for the credits earned towards your degree. For more information on our Portfolio Review process, contact an enrollment advisor today!

Through our Transfer Credit Pathways both Undergraduate and Graduate students can turn their professional training, work, or life experience into college credit. For more information about our transfer credit pathways, click here.

Student and Faculty Research

The Division of Science, Mathematics, and Information Science and Technology provides students with many opportunities to participate in research. It should be emphasized that much of the research being done is interdisciplinary. Any student who is interested in doing research should contact the lead professor. For more information on Student and Faculty Research, click here.
