Wilmington University offers credit recognition and opportunities for experiential learning. This allows students to earn college credit for knowledge that was obtained after completing high school (undergraduate) or post-baccalaureate (graduate).
Our role is to support students who have unique and/or extensive prior experience that deserves a review for potential academic credit. We collect student resumes, prior academic transcripts, industry credentials such as trainings and/or certifications, and complete an initial discussion with the student about their background. Through the guidance of the University faculty, we determine how prior learning would apply as academic credit toward a Wilmington University degree. We then discuss additional options for earning academic credit in non-traditional formats, as well as traditional formats such as online and face-to-face courses to accelerate the student’s pathway to a degree.
Through a Portfolio Assessment (PA) students can earn college credit for knowledge that was obtained after completing high school or post-baccalaureate through work experience (military or civilian), in-service/corporate training programs and more. Learn more about Portfolio Assessment (PA).
