We do not award credit for life experience. Rather, we provide the learner the opportunity to earn credit by demonstrating that they possess college-level knowledge, and we have several methods to help learner do just that. These methods include:
This is a credit-by-exam program. Learner can earn credit by taking a final exam without taking a course.
Prior Learning Assessment
For this method of earning credit, learner is assigned to a PLA mentor who has expertise in the specific course subject. With the mentorĄ¯s guidance, learner develops and electronically submits a portfolio that articulates and proves they possess the subject matter knowledge that corresponds with the requirements noted in the PLA course description.
Licenses & Certifications
Learners may earn credit if they possess one of more than 60 licenses and certifications in a wide range of fields, from aviation and healthcare to law enforcement and business. Licenses and/or certifications must be current and valid.
Learners may earn credit for professional training programs they have completed that have been evaluated by the Quality Assurance Commission.
What matters is that you possess that university-level knowledge ¨C not how you acquired it.
