Credit for Prior Learning Program

As a student at Morehead State University, you can be awarded academic credit for college-level learning gained through life experiences. MSU understands that learning occurs in many different ways outside the classroom; adults learn in different ways and have accumulated knowledge along many different paths such as:

  • Employment
  • Volunteer activities
  • Travel
  • Civic activities
  • Military service
  • Hobbies
  • Private study
  • In-service training.
Credit is awarded based on your ability to reflect and articulate college-level learning to faculty evaluators.

Undergraduate students can earn up to 30 credits toward a bachelor's degree or 15 hours toward an associate degree. Graduate students can earn up to nine hours of credit. Students submit a portfolio consisting of a student information sheet, resume, a narrative outlining how the learning experiences relate to the student outcomes for the course, and documentation to support prior learning.
