Academic Policy Details


Assessment of Prior Learning

The University recognizes 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 curriculum and degree requirements.

The award of prior learning hours earned through the petition process may not exceed 36 credit hours for a baccalaureate, 15 credit hours for an associate degree, or 9 hours for a graduate degree.

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.
