Life Experience Program

The Life Experience Program offers returning adult students an alternative to traditional classroom study. Students may receive college credit for knowledge that is acquired through work experiences, both paid and volunteer. Students must be matriculated in a degree program.

In order to receive college credit, the student must submit a portfolio, documenting and describing their college-level knowledge as it relates to a specific course requirement. A departmental evaluator will review the portfolio. A fee will be charged for the evaluation. Life Experience credit will not be posted on the student's transcript until the student becomes eligible for graduation. Interested students should contact the Office of Continuing Education for information.
