Yes. All course with a "C" or above will be considered, just send us the documentation/transcript on the coursework you've completed, and we can determine if it will grant you credit toward your degree program with AFARAND . Many students who enter a graduate degree program have some formal graduate education and advanced work experiences for which credit can be granted towards the particular degree required. The Admissions Committee evaluates these credits and determines whether and which credits can be applied to the various courses required for the program.
Tell me more about the degrees on the basis of background?
Degrees on the basis of background is a concept that originated in 1987 and evolved from the philosophy of getting some course credits on the basis of experience as offered by the top schools in the United States of America.
A background degree suits individuals who possess basic to expert level exposure and experience in a specific field but lack educational documents to prove themselves. Without a degree these individuals are held back, struggling for jobs and promotions. Through background degrees these individuals can now get recognition for their skills and talents from an accredited university in just 21 days.
These background degrees are now widely accepted and have received accreditation status from various prestigious institutions and organizations.
