We understand that not all education occurs in a traditional college classroom. To recognize the variety of experiences students bring, we assign prior learning credit for extra-institutional learning, military training, professional licenses, and certain test scores.

MVNU has several partnerships with Ohio community colleges and technical schools. Learn how we help smooth out the transition for students to help put their hard-earned credits toward a bachelor’s degree.
