Credit for Prior Learning Bypass Assessments

Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) Bypass Assessments

CPL Bypass Assessments give students who are enrolled at Alverno College an opportunity to earn credit for some introductory classes without having to take the classes. Successfully completing the assessments helps students save money and shorten their time to graduation by not having to take some introductory classes for which they already have the necessary knowledge.

Prior experience and coursework determine whether students are eligible to complete the assessments. The Assessment and Outreach Center (AOC) notifies students who are eligible. Students can schedule CPL assessments by contacting the AOC. They also can schedule appointments online using the forms located on each assessment page.

The following is a list of current CPL Bypass assessments. Click the links below for more information about each assessment. Students are encouraged to complete the practice assessments to prepare for the assessments.
