CREDIT FROM MILITARY

Undergraduate level students may receive elective credits from military training/service through the American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations. Student must request an official copy of their (ACE) military transcript be sent directly to Asbury University.  Maximum credit from military service is 24 credits. In the traditional undergraduate program military service can satisfy PED 100 and PE 111.  Any more specific courses being credited from the military transcript would be based on a case by case examination.

 

ADVANCE CREDIT BY EXAMINATION

Incoming students may be granted academic credit on the basis of tests administered by the College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP), the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), and the International Baccalaureate (IB)

Asbury University grants such credit only on the basis of original documentation and does not grant transfer credit for institutional examinations or credit given by other colleges or universities.  Student should arrange to have original documents of AP, CLEP, and/or IB scores sent directly to the Office of the Registrar at Asbury University.  Student score reports are not considered official.

IB: INTERNATIONAL BACCALAUREATE
Asbury University recognizes the International Baccalaureate program and grants credit on a course by course basis to students submitting appropriate scores of 5, 6, or 7 on these examinations.  Credit is awarded for SL and HL courses.

 

CPL: CREDIT BY PRIOR LEARNING  

CREDIT BY PRIOR LEARNING [APS] Adult Professional Studies Undergraduates Only

Students entering the APS degree completion program may earn additional semester units through Credit by Prior Learning (CPL).  A maximum of 24 credit hours toward graduation may be earned through CPL. Credit by Prior Learning credits can be submitted based on a variety of different sources including, but not limited to, military training (separate from the ACE transcript credits), workshops, seminars, self-study, non-credit classes, training programs, and work experience.  Asbury University will consider submitted CPL documentation, but is not obligated to accept credit for prior learning.

1. APS students wishing to apply for CPL credit will be expected to attend a workshop describing the process and expectations before beginning the process of a CPL application. This is available as part of the APS Orientation course, UNV 201.

2. The student will coordinate the Credit by Prior Learning process with the Adult Professional Studies Program Director.

3. The University evaluates appropriate units for the student’s actual learning (not just the experience) from the submitted sources. Asbury University will reference the criteria recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE) and the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) when evaluating student submissions for credit. 

4. All documentation for CPL credits must be submitted and the review completed before the student reaches senior standing (90.0 credit hours).

5. Documentation is reviewed first by the Dean of Graduate & Professional Studies.  The Dean may require further review by additional faculty members or area experts based on the type of prior learning.

6. If CPL credit is approved the Dean of GPS shall submit a CPL credit form with recommendation letter to the registrar for processing.

7. The University may assess a Portfolio Evaluation Fee based on requested credit hours at the following rates:

                    1-9 credits $  30.00 per credit

                10-19 credits $300.00  flat fee

                20-24 credits $600.00  flat fee

Students are assessed the appropriate CPL fee regardless of whether the amount of credit applied for is granted.

 

CREDIT BY PRIOR OR OUTSIDE LEARNING [GRAD] Specific Graduate Programs Only

Credit From Work Experience (Contact Graduate Communications)

1. Available only in specific programs, a limited number of graduate credits may be granted for extensive professional experience that covers the learning outcomes of a required graduate course.

2. Student must be able to produce portfolio work that is similar to the quality that would result from taking the course. There may be a cost for review of portfolio materials.

Sponsored Professional Training (Contact Graduate Education)

Within specific programs, Asbury University sponsors and arranges targeted outside training through non-registered courses/programs which may be used to earn specified graduate credits.  Sponsored Professional Training (SPT) is only for students who are already matriculated in the appropriate Asbury University graduate program, and in conjunction with specific program requirements.
