Credit for Prior Learning

Take your life and all you have learned, and use it to earn college credit through Prior Learning Assessment.

The Center for Experiential Learning & Assessment offers many programs and services in addition to prior learning assessment to assist you with educational planning in preparation for:

  • Receiving credit for documented learning;
  • Reducing the time it takes to finish studies; and
  • Decreasing the cost of a bachelor's degree.

The knowledge you've gained from a variety of areas such as corporate and on-the-job training, military training, community service, parenting, volunteer work, seminars, home management, workshops, travel study and independent research can be evaluated for credit toward your bachelor's degree through the Prior Learning Assessment program.
