Life Credit Portfolio
Turn your experience into credit
You deserve credit for your life learning
Not all learning is classroom-based; you deserve credit for what you’ve accomplished. Using procedures developed by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL), we assess knowledge gained outside the college classroom on a course-by-course basis for possible credit toward a degree. Document and submit your college-level learning experiences in an online portfolio demonstrating your ability to fulfill course requirements. We’ll evaluate the portfolio under CAEL standards; meeting at least 70% of the course objectives awards you life experience college credits.
All undergraduate courses are eligible for life credit via portfolio review.
Choose a course and meet with your Success Coach to confirm your eligibility.
Download and complete the Life Credit Portfolio Application Form and pay the $250 submission fee at your campus business office (remember, that is significantly less than tuition for the same class)
Submit your portfolio online
Within 72 hours your review will be complete and, if you attained 70% or more of the course objectives, your credits will be posted online.
