Can I use life experience to get my degree later in life since I have had a lot of experience in theater acting, writing, directing and teaching though I don't have a completed BA or master's?

So, life experience credits are a touchy subject with online and traditional universities. Many academic institutions as well as employers do frown on degrees that include credits from life experience, so it would be best to do some research on the theater industries feeling about this.

Now having said this, let me direct you to an article that discusses in a little more depth the ins-and-outs of life experience credits - The Life Experience Credit: An Explanation.

This online article will explain the in more detail this topics, as well as guide you to a few more articles that address the topics of accreditation as well.
