Credit for Prior Learning (CPL)

Credit for Prior Learning is degree credit awarded for demonstrated relevant college-level education acquired through nontraditional schooling, work or other life experience.

Through CPL, subject matter experts evaluate how prior experiences might translate to college-level knowledge and how that knowledge may equate to college credit.

Students can apply for CPL at any time after admission to the College. Credit approved through the evaluation process will be posted to their transcript.

A student may obtain a maximum of 30 semester credits of CPL. Awarded CPL will not affect a student’s GPA or quality points, nor will it substitute for the required minimum of 20 semester credits of residency needed for graduation.
