Thanks for your question!
There are four online colleges that offer real college credit for life and work experience:
Each offer different options and while it is very rare to earn a 100% life experience degree, it is possible.
Most regionally accredited universities limit the number of life experience credits they will accept to 30 credits maximum (one year of college).
Both Thomas Edison State College and Excelsior College operate primarily as assessment colleges and are great options if you've had a lot of technical training that can easily be "translated" into credit hours.
Both Charter Oak State College and Western Governors University offer life experience credit through competency or challenge exams.

You'll need to speak with college admissions counselors to make sure you are eligible for life experience credit.
PS -- Watch out for life experience degree scams! Anytime someone offers you a diploma based on a resume review it is probably a scam!
