A. Assessing Credit for Equivalent Learning Experience

Life learning experience credit may be awarded. Most colleges have assessment programs. To qualify, life experience must be educationally equivalent to that learned in traditionally offered classes. Traditional classroom course descriptions specify exact learning objectives. Life learning experience must meet those same objectives in order to qualify for credit. Experience must be documented, and submitted to a review board for credit determination.


Colleges and universities that award life experience credit will have an assessment center to assist students in identifying relevant experience and preparing the required documentation.
