Prior learning is college-equivalent learning acquired through non-traditional schooling, work or other life experiences. These might include skills from military service, job-related training, and volunteer arenas.
Students can demonstrate and earn college credits for prior learning through such methods as nationalized testing, challenge exams, and portfolio examination. Credit earned for prior learning, Advanced Placement, correspondence courses, CLEP and other tested-only credit may not apply. The institution to which you transfer will evaluate these credits according to its own policies.
