Admissions to the program opened Nov. 18. UW officials promoted the much-anticipated launch at a news conference.
The web-based initiative allows students to earn college credit by demonstrating knowledge gleaned from the workplace, military experience or coursework on tests. The online program is designed to help working adults earn degrees faster.
