Earning Credit for Life Experience
Learning can occur through many avenues. If you have work or volunteer experience, served in the military, or participated in non-credit training, you might be eligible to use those learning experiences to earn college credits. Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) can help you identify and present learning from your experiences in a way that can help you earn college credits and complete your degree more quickly.
Your completed and approved CPL results in credits for approved courses on your transcript. IU’s policy of Credit for Prior Learning (CPL (ACA-60)) describes this process.
