The Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education recently launched a new website, ShowWhatYouKnowOK.org, targeting students who would like to earn college credit for knowledge gained through work and life experiences, non-degree-granting institutions, military training or other learning environments.
The new site consolidates the multiple options available to students and provides simple site navigation, a fresh visual look and feel, and a responsive design that is flexible between workstations and mobile devices.
“Oklahoma continues to be a leader in engaging students to return to college to complete their higher education degrees,” said Chancellor Glen D. Johnson. “This new website provides options for any person looking for the opportunity to turn prior learning into college credit, including those with industry experience, students who took AP courses in high school, those who have completed training at an Oklahoma career technology center, and members or former members of the armed services.”
The site outlines options for adults who have earned previous college credits and are interested in completing a degree program, those who have attended a career technology center or hold industry-recognized credentials, members or veterans of the armed services who have completed military study and training, and high school graduates looking to use advanced standing scores for college credit. The site also connects users to comprehensive information about financial aid and the State Regents’ degree completion initiative for adult learners, Reach Higher.
The new website is supported by a grant from Lumina Foundation, an independent, private foundation in Indianapolis that is committed to making opportunities for learning beyond high school available to all. Lumina envisions a system that is easy to navigate, delivers fair results, and meets the nation’s need for talent through a broad range of credentials. The Foundation’s goal is to prepare people for informed citizenship and for success in a global economy.
