CREDIT FOR PRIOR LEARNING BY PORTFOLIO
As adults in the world of work, the experiences you have gained are invaluable and can be evaluated for college credits. The Credit for Prior Learning via Life/Work Experiences offers the mature individual with considerable life and work experiences, an opportunity to transform those experiences into college credits and to apply them towards a degree at Medgar Evers College of The City University of New York.
It is important to understand that credit is given for the learning that comes from the experience, not for the experience alone, so you have to demonstrate that learning did occur.
- Applicants must be enrolled full-time or part-time at Medgar Evers College to initiate the process.
- A student must have completed 24 college credits; these credits must include English 112 and English 150. If enrolled in English 150, a student may request permission to apply at that time.
- If the student has completed the college requirements in his/ her major, the amount of credits requested and approved must be less than that which is needed for graduation.
CLEP* and Credit for Prior Learning are here to help you succeed!!!
