College Credit for Off-Campus Study.
Sharon, Amiel T.
This paper summarizes some of the recent literature on unconventional college-level education gained outside the classroom. The first section reviews the major types of off-campus learning for which college credit is received, including correspondence instruction, educational television, military service experiences, and independent study. The second section discusses methods by which formal recognition is provided for this education, such as The College-Level Examination Program, The New York State College Proficiency Examination Program, and The General Educational Development Testing Program. A list of references concludes the paper. (AF)
