Prior Learning credits represent a substantial savings in time and money, as the credits you earn are at a rate well below current tuition costs for coursework, and you pay for only for the number of credits you actually use toward your degree. Prior Learning credits can also reduce the time involved in earning your degree; the more Prior Learning credits you earn, the fewer courses you need to take to complete your degree.
The pages linked to the questions below provide additional information about Prior Learning credit. For more thorough coverage of each topic, read the
Prior Learning Student Handbook.
