Credit for prior learning (CPL) is college credit awarded for validated college-level skills and knowledge gained outside of a college classroom.

Students may demonstrate proficiency in an eligible course and receive college credit through approved alternative methods: 

  • Satisfactory score on an approved standardized exam (AP, IB, CLEP and DLPT)
  • Military service/credit 
  • Industry recognized credential documentation
  • Portfolio review
  • Credit by examination
