Prior Learning Credit

Students may be awarded college credit for college-level learning experiences if they are able to provide documentation for their learning. Learning may have occurred through workshops, seminars, licenses, professional schools or other significant learning experiences. An academic advisor will work with students to help them identify life-learning experiences or professional training worthy of potential credit consideration. Upon submission, life-learning essays (LLE) and professional schools and training (PST) petitions are evaluated by appropriate faculty members. A student may petition for up to 30 credit hours in LLE and/or PST.

Students interested in pursuing prior learning assessment credit should contact their academic advisor to enroll in the online Prior Learning Seminar. A non-refundable $50 tuition deposit is required. You will have access to the Prior Learning Seminar for six months from the date of payment.
