Prior Learning Assessment Credit

Undergraduate students may apply for credit for past personal and professional experiences that have resulted in the attainment of college-level competencies. Academic credit may be awarded for learning resulting from career and personal experiences; job-related activities; extensive hobbies, travel and foreign residency; community service; and training received through on-the-job instruction, self-study, or specialized schooling. To be applied to a degree plan, prior learning must be directly related to the degree being pursued. Credit from prior learning may not be used to meet any University Program or Competency requirement. For more information, contact the Prior Learning Assessment Coordinator at 989-774-7126.

Most main campus majors will not accept prior learning credit to meet requirements. For more information, consult with faculty major advisors regarding prior learning.
