What is Credit for Prior Learning?
We want to give you the credit that you deserve whether that is for military service, on-the-job experience and training, life experience, or through various examinations such as CLEP and AP. Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) provides students with the opportunity to earn credit for college-level learning acquired outside of a structured classroom. To qualify, students must demonstrate college-level knowledge and competencies that meet course-specific learning outcomes. CPL may be granted based on the judgment of credentialing experts in the specific discipline. Credit may be awarded through a variety of assessment methods which are outlined below. Starting in May 2023 requests for credit via departmental exam or portfolio must be submitted with a CPL Request form. Other credits are requested by submitting the official test scores, program completion paperwork, or transcripts to GHC during the Admissions process or to email@example.com if submitted after admission is granted.
