Industry Experience

Did you know that your previous work experience may have prepared you to earn college credit toward your chosen degree? Many students who choose to attend OSUIT enter our programs with a wealth of knowledge and experience that has been gained through years of hard work. At OSUIT, we recognize that every student is unique; therefore, we offer several prior learning assessment options through which you may demonstrate the knowledge and skills that you already possess related to your chosen field of study. These prior learning credit opportunities not only save you time and money, but also support your success in the classroom by allowing you to enter your degree program at a point that is appropriate to your level of experience.

Explore the Career Cluster table below for suggested OSUIT degrees that may match your training and experience.
