Credit for Prior Learning

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).

Why relearn what you already know? At WilmU you have options.

Wilmington University offers credit recognition for knowledge that was obtained after completing high school (undergraduate) or post-baccalaureate (graduate). Many Wilmington University students have prior experience that deserves a review for potential academic credit. In coordination with University faculty we will review your resume, prior academic transcripts, and industry credentials such as trainings and/or certifications to determine opportunities to earn additional academic credits toward your degree program. After the initial review we will discuss additional options for earning academic credit in traditional and non-traditional formats such as online and face-to-face courses to accelerate the pathway to your degree.
