Lifelong Learning Credits
College Credit for Work & Life Experience
Lifelong Learning offers those students having five or more years of relevant work/life experience an alternate opportunity to gain credit. Work/life credit applies only to courses that include applied or hands-on learning.
Only courses listed in the most current catalog may be petitioned or challenged for credit. Credits are not applicable to general education courses such as the natural sciences, social sciences, physical sciences, the humanities or internships.
Portfolio presentation of work/life experience is not to be used if comparable College Level Examination Program (CLEP) examinations are available. CLEP testing is more appropriate for the foregoing classification of academic courses. The process may involve competency testing, in addition to proof of work experience.
Work/life experience credits cannot exceed 9 credits for associate degree seeking students, 9 credits for masters degree seeking students and 18 credits for bachelor's degree seeking students. Credits earned through this program are considered transfer credits.
