Credit for Prior Learning
Why relearn what you already know?
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).
How can we help you?
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.
What is Portfolio Assessment?
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).
