Overview

For students who wish to explore transpersonal psychology solely for their personal enrichment, Atlantic University has instituted a noncredit option for lifelong learners. Almost all of the courses in the Transpersonal Psychology curriculum can be taken at the noncredit level (some restrictions apply). This 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.

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.

Program Objectives

Lifelong Learning students are

  • Held to the course deadlines for assignments;
  • Required to read the required material and to respond on 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.

Lifelong Learning students may enroll in most courses in the Transpersonal Psychology curriculum, with the following exceptions:

  • Integrated Imagery: Regression Hypnosis (IIRH) courses: TP6115, TP6120, TP6125
