This report is concerned with the issues at hand regarding the awarding of academic credit for work or life experience relevant to the field a student wishes to study. Four major recommendations are made within the report: (1) a committee should be set up to govern the accrediting of life and work experience, to determine the overall policy, and to review applications for credit; (2) a counseling programs should be set up to advise students of the accrediting procedure, to help the assess their own backgrounds and qualifications, and to help them obtain sufficient evidence, references, and demonstration of experience; (3) the student should activate the procedure by completing an application and by obtaining such references and information as would be needed to substantiate his claim; and (4) a degree of flexibility should be maintained in order to assure the participating student of the fairest decision possible (HS)
