Experiential Learning Credit
The assessment of Prior Learning, also known as Experiential Learning, is designed to provide students with an alternative method of obtaining college credit. Knowledge acquired from a combination of work experience, non-credit courses, seminar training, and workshops may translate into college credit.
College credit may also be applied for CLEP scores using the ACE recommended score for a particular exam. For more information visit: www.collegeboard.org/clep.
