Save Time and Money

Not only does the Professional Portfolio help you save time, but it also helps save money too. Working adults pay tuition for the Professional Portfolio class but do not pay tuition for the hours awarded through the class.

How it Works

  1. Working adults enroll in the Professional Portfolio class (PRST 3305 – Professional Learning)
  2. They complete a professional portfolio detailing how the knowledge and skills gained from their work experience correlates with college-level courses
  3. The student’s portfolio is reviewed by an independent panel of experts to determine the amount of credit to be awarded
  4. Up to 30 hours of credit hours are added to the student’s transcript as hours completed toward their bachelor's degree

The DBU Difference

At DBU, we believe all truth comes from God. Each discipline and each class fully integrates a biblical faith into academic learning. One of our professors describes it as a glass of ice tea. When you add sugar to the tea, it interacts with the liquid and sinks to the bottom. But when you stir the tea, the sugar fundamentally changes the tea. It looks the same, but it is so much sweeter. The integration of faith is like sugar. Faith makes a DBU education fundamentally different. You will learn the same concepts you would anywhere else, but the experience will be richer because of the integration of faith.
