CVC 106: Prior Learning Assessment Portfolio Development

SKU: CVC 106

(credits awarded vary - minimum 0, maximum 30)

This course will help students learn the theory behind prior learning assessment and to develop a portfolio for prior learning assessment. Completion of this course enables the student to have up to 30 credits evaluated for prior learning assessment based on the portfolio developed in this course.

Note: In addition to other graduation requirements, all students must take at least 10 courses at City Vision in order to graduate. Prior Learning Assessment only counts as 1 of those courses, regardless of how many credits are earned as a part of a student’s Prior Learning Portfolio.  Prior learning credits may satisfy requirements in the major or general education. Any additional credits beyond the first 3 that are earned count the same as if they were transfer credits.
