Helping Turn Life Experiences
Into College Credit
Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) serves Massachusetts residents with a wide range of work backgrounds and life experiences—professionals seeking specialized certifications or new skills to help secure a promotion; stay-at-home parents hoping to complete a degree; military veterans looking to transition back into the civilian workforce; displaced workers impacted by layoffs caused by economic downturns; and more. Although our adult students come from different walks of life and choose different career paths, they are all determined to get to where they want to go. With 15 campuses statewide, the Massachusetts Community College system offers a number of program options and flexible delivery formats. Whatever your journey, our credit for prior learning programs are designed to help you reach your destination.
