Assessment of Prior Learning


The University acknowledges that knowledge may be systematically acquired in a variety of ways that do not involve or entail a formal classroom or instructional setting. The University also acknowledges that knowledge so acquired may relate directly or specifically to undergraduate curriculum and degree requirements.

The University maintains formal procedures for the assessment of prior learning and allows up to 36 credit hours to be applied toward its undergraduate degree through the Graduate College using these procedures.

Credit for prior learning may be acknowledged in instances in which a substantive relationship can be documented between knowledge gained experientially and the various realms of instruction represented in the curriculum of the University.

Students interested in the assessment of prior learning should enroll in BMT 339 Career Assessment and Planning. Questions about the course should be addressed to the Graduate College Office.
