The Lifelong Learning program is for seekers who wish to immerse themselves into an innovative online learning environment, which focuses on holistic healing, spiritual development, and the teachings of Edgar Cayce. These students want to learn more about themselves and others for both their personal enrichment and professional development. Atlantic University's distance learning, noncredit courses brings the knowledge to you!
Atlantic University has instituted a noncredit option for lifelong learners. Almost all of the courses at the university can be taken at the noncredit level (some restrictions apply). The Lifelong Learning program is a great option for those who do not wish to pursue a graduate degree or a formal certificate, but still want to participate in all that Atlantic University has to offer. And, the online format is great for those who cannot travel to Virginia Beach for on-campus programs.
There are no prerequisite requirements for participation in Lifelong Learning courses and students will study with the same mentors as in the degree and certificate programs. Courses taken at the noncredit level do not have academic credit and are not transferable to the master’s degree program.
Upon the successful completion of each course, the student will be issued an official university Certificate of Completion.
Certain courses can transfer into the Spiritual Guidance Mentor Certificate program.
This unique experience is available to those seeking profound personal growth and enrichment through noncredit instruction. The program is designed to be an innovative learning experience that will not only result in expanding the student’s vocabulary and knowledge in this field of study but will also work to augment various professional career paths and enhance personal growth.
Lifelong Learning students are:
- Held to the course deadlines for assignments;
- Required to read the required material and to respond to the topic assigned (versus digressing from the assigned topic);
- Required to complete practicums when assigned;
- Expected to write clearly using proper grammar and punctuation.
Lifelong learning students are not:
- Held to strict APA standards in formatting written assignments (but must cite sources properly);
- Required to take proctored exams.
At the discretion of the faculty member and the specific course being taught, some assignments may be identified in the course as optional for noncredit students. Faculty members may also elect to modify assignment requirements for noncredit students, such as word count or page count.
All grades for noncredit students are either Successfully Completed (SC) or Not Successfully Completed (NC). This grading criterion is used for all assignments and the final course grade.
