Prior Learning and Experience Chart Want to apply credits towards completing your degree? Complete the form below to schedule a free consultation with a representative from the Center for Degree Completion and Adult Learning to discuss your Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) options. The Center for Degree Completion and Adult Learning recognizes that not all learning has resulted from the traditional classroom. Therefore, we strive to work with students who come to us with vast work experience and training and provide various forms of CPL including: Credit by Portfolio, Credit by Examination, Military Credit, Transfer credits, and as outlined below Credit by Credential. This form of Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) allows students to earn credit for learning outside the traditional classroom by submitting licenses, certifications, and/or professional work transcripts. This path may save students time and money as they work toward their degree.
