Credit for Prior Learning

Alverno's Credit for Prior Learning program gives you the opportunity to earn credit towards your degree. This could help you save money and time, and shorten your time to graduation by not having to take some classes for which you already have the necessary knowledge. 

To earn credit for prior learning, you must be enrolled at Alverno. Also, you have to provide evidence that you have met learning outcomes for specific courses through comparable knowledge and experiences outside the classroom.

This video produced by CAEL provides a general overview of earning credit for prior learning.


Please review the Brief Overview of the CPL Process for Students for specific details about Alverno's CPL program. If you have questions about the program, please see Frequently Asked Questions.
