Credit for Prior Learning (CPL)

Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) allows students to use skills they already have towards a college degree or certificate. Work, life, volunteer work, national exams, industry credentials and military experience may be translated into credit, allowing you to take fewer classes and earn your degree faster. CPL eliminates redundancies for students who have already earned credentials or mastered skills required for their program of study. The academic information section of the catalog contains more information.
