Students entering the APS degree completion program may earn a maximum of 24 credit hours towards graduation through Credit for Prior Learning (CPL).  This may be submitted based on a variety of different sources including, but not limited to, military training (separate from the ACE transcript evaluation), workshops, seminars, self-study, non-credit classes, training programs, courses taken through non-accredited institutions, and work experience completed prior to attending Asbury University.  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’s final year at Asbury, preferably before the student reaches senior status (90.0 credits).

5. The assembled documentation is reviewed 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 requested.

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 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
