Validating personal and unique life experiences can be difficult to uncover with just an exam. That’s why your profile and background information will be carefully reviewed by a qualified assessor at the college of your choosing. In certain situations, your advisor may also suggest an appropriate Institutional Challenge Exam or College Level Examination Program (CLEP).
A CPL Assessment does not guarantee college credit. The program is designed to validate what you’ve learned through formal and informal training and experience and equate that knowledge to college-level coursework. Because everyone brings a different background and skill set to the table, results can vary.
Walking through our online CPL Wizard is the first step in the process. Once you submit your information, you will be contacted by a CPL specialist who will help guide you through the process and answer any questions you may have.
There is no cost to connect with a CPL advisor and explore your options. Depending on your college of choice and the CPL for which you are eligible, there may be a fee. This WILL still represent significant time and money savings when compared to enrolling in a traditional college-level course — and a great long-term value.
For many adults, the thought of going back to college to finish a degree or complete a certificate can sound very appealing. But they’re often faced with concerns over whether they can afford tuition. Although cost is a major factor to consider, resources such as Credit for Prior Learning can help you save a significant amount of money while also achieving your career and educational goals. Adult students who receive prior learning credit typically earn an associate degree approximately 4.5 months quicker than their non-CPL peers, saving an average of $7,200 in college tuition.
