Your Experience Counts

Save money by earning credits for the things you already know.

Through military or corporate training, previous learning, or even volunteer experiences, you may already have the knowledge you need to get ahead.

Through Prior Learning Assessment opportunities, you can prove that knowledge and fulfill the requirements of your degree program.


How to qualify for credits

  • Credit-by-Exams

    Earn credits by proving your knowledge through exam programs such as the CLEP, DSST, AP, Excelsior/UExcel, and more.

  • Military Training

    Boot camp, basic training, officer training school, and other military training and experience are often eligible for credit.

  • Portfolio-based Assessments

    A portfolio is a great way to demonstrate knowledge earned through work experience or community and volunteer activities.

  • Professional Training

    On-the-job and corporate training can be applied toward a degree through articulation agreements or other evaluations.
