SCHOOLS

This program is designed primarily to assist working adults or those whose schedules do not accommodate a traditional classroom experience. The traditionally glamorized collegiate experience will not take place at Suffield.

CONCLUSION
Whether you're doing it for yourself or to advance your career, earning a degree can be one of the proudest and hardest-achieved moments in ones life. Suffield University takes into account that not everyone has two or four years to dedicate to a classroom and study groups. This alternative education provider uses modern technology of the Internet to provide a fully accredited and recognized degree to students across the country. By applying documented life experiences to your credit hours, and working at your own pace, you're able to complete any level degree you choose in a window of time you're most comfortable with.

I spent alot of money taking undergraduate courses. I jumped at the opportunity to receive a Suffield Bachelors of Science upon expert evaluation of my matriculated college credits and job experience. Now i am reading articles the degree received is not valid degree. I realised there might be some discrepancies but illegal in some states was not one. Also, I could never find a physical address can you provide this information? posted Apr 17th, 2010 12:07 am

Accredited schools are based upon training in a classroom setting with instructions given by a professor having a Masters or Doctorate degree from an accredited university. However, in my 40 years of business experience I have never seen one CEO or COO hired because he had college degree. Businesses look at the degree as a building block approach for junior to middle management. Upper level managementposition look for years of successful experience in the field, not time spent in a classroom. Ask any first year teacher where they learned the most about teaching and they will tell you that their first year in the classroom with kids far exceeded the learning from the institution. Institutional learning has its benefits, but no one wants a doctor that did not complete their internship, or a pilot that just completed ground training in a simulator. Learning occurs in many environments and should not be limited to a brick and motor format. If our society were more advanced we would provide more degrees for "real world life learning experiences". However, the eductional unions of our society will continue to deiscredit any learning process that does not come from their mold. There are a lot of very intelligent people working in all fields that do not have degrees but can perform their jobs better than many that have degrees. So I feel that there should be accredited systems to grant people degrees for their real life learning experiences. posted Jan 11th, 2010 10:21 am

Hello!

First, thank you for an informative and very useful website.



I left school a very long time ago (early 60's) , worked for employers up until around 30 years ago, when I had the opportunity to manage and improve a business without interference from the company owners.



Since then I have developed/managed/owned many businesses, saved failing/failed businesses, operated concert/entertainment venues and hired/promoted many entertainers, some of which were, and still are household names, took over companies that I previously worked for, reconstructed and renovated a number of buildings including classic historic buildings and currently operate a very successful respected business with over 70 trained staff, I consider myself very fortunate to have enjoyed an incredibly interesting and fruitful career.



In short, I've been there, done it, got the T shirt and have proven my abilities beyond all doubt, does this mean that some youngster who does 4 years of classroom study, while spending most of their free time and possibly some study time, half p*ssed, (I used to run university nights in our venues, and have employed hundreds of students, so I do know!) without practical experience of the real hard world they have been shielded from, should be judged as having a higher status and employability factor than someone like me.



L.E degrees can be an excellent way to evaluate someone's actual life achievements and proven ability and as I actually vet and employ professionals, I would certainly not dismiss them simply because they presented an L.E degree, essentially that is an evaluation of what they have actually achieved, rather than the hope that a student with a traditional degree, but no experience, might be able to perform the job properly.



After scrutinising many distance learning sites, I made a decision to submit my details to an L.E degree provider and have been accepted by Suffield, I must commend them on a professional and courteous service, the package I received was professionally presented and completely satisfactory.



It did not take me 15 days to earn this degree, it took 40 years of damned hard work and proven ability, what Suffield did was assess the value and knowledge gained over 40 years and applied it as college credits.



In my case, I do not and never will, need a degree for employment, but the L.E degree will at least provide a reminder to consider my own achievements as worthwhile.



Decent quality organisations like Suffield University are providing a valuable contribution in recognising achievement, after proven ability in the respective field has been demonstrated and in years to come may be seen as frontrunners, in area that Traditional Universities have been woefully slow to recognise or capitalise on.

Along with local college credits, business training, and work experience I was able to earn my degree in business. My old boss knew of my frustration in not being able to finish my college degree in the late 80’s due to a demanding work schedule so he suggested Suffield. I made contact and continued both the college and business education earning my degree in business. Some companies did not accepted my degree, but working for some fortune 500 companies have. posted Oct 26th, 2009 7:45 am

I am 58 and received a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration 2006. I have been working since the age of 16. I have a good job and

Weathered this economic downturn with no problem. A life experience degree was the right decision for me. As the saying goes “You get out of it, what you put into it”.

I have the BA and MBA from Suffield and I don't list them on my resume anymore. Fortune 500 companies know this place is just a paper-mill and no real education was obtained through an "accredited" school. Don't waste your money with these people!!! posted Sep 15th, 2009 7:59 pm

A degree earned by self-evaluation followed by submission of the proper dollar- figure is worthless and, of course, a lie. posted Aug 21st, 2009 4:50 am

Please advise. Thanks. posted Jul 22nd, 2009 3:19 am

For us older folks this a great way to work on a level playing field.

However, when you do enter any degree program such as this, you better know your stuff to honor this award.

People will know soon if you don't size up to your education! Use it to help yourself and not harm! posted Jun 30th, 2009 12:06 pm

My dentist went to Suffield Medical School and says that it was the smartest thing he has ever done. He told them that he had teeth in his mouth for decades and they applied this experience toward his M.D. Degree so that he was able to obtain it in only 15 days!!! posted May 28th, 2009 2:16 pm

I like the program. I have over (35) years experience in my field and I feel that the combination of my college credits plus the practical working experience I was able to gain over the years more than qualifies me for all of my degrees (BS, MA & PhD) in my area of expertise. Thank you Suffield University. posted May 24th, 2009 12:07 pm
