1. Written documentation
A maximum of 30 credits may be earned through this method.
This is structured college-equivalent learning for which academic credit has not been awarded. It is comprised of continuing education courses, professional workshops, company-sponsored seminars, apprenticeships, licensing preparation and other structured instructional experiences for which verification can be obtained and significant learning can be demonstrated. Credit is not given for attendance but only upon verification of college level learning which demonstrates a balance between theory and practice.
This learning may come from professional positions, volunteer work, civic responsibilities, travel and other significant life developments. Verification is accomplished through essays, which are presented to appropriate faculty evaluators in related disciplines. A balance between theory and practice must also be demonstrated.
