Prior Learning is college-equivalent education acquired through non-traditional schooling, work, or other life experiences.
Methods for earning credit
What prior learning may qualify for credits?
Some restrictions may apply Students may receive only ten exemption credits of prior learning credit. An additional 30 credits of transfer credit from other college work may be accepted. Only the course title, course number, and semester hours are posted on the transcript. Awarding of credit for prior learning is solely at the discretion of program faculty. Are prior learning credits transferable? Should you decide to apply for admission to a traditional degree program after receiving a credit award for prior learning, you should be aware that each college or university has its own policies concerning transfer and prior learning credits. It would be wise to check the transfer policy of a college or university on prior learning credits before making a decision to apply for admission.
