Implement a Credit for Prior Learning Program

A Webinar Series from ACE

January 23, 2019

​​Help post-traditional learners achieve success by expanding flexible completion pathways on your campus. Credit for prior learning (CPL) is a critical component in the development of flexible pathways for post-traditional student success at your college or university. The 2019 CPL Webinar Series focuses on issues that higher education systems and institutions face when implementing credit for prior learning policies and practices. 

The three-part series offers: 

  1. Strategies for implementation
  2. Institutional examples of CPL as a part of completion pathways, and 
  3. A special emphasis on the articulation and transfer of third party validated learning, which occurs in the workplace, military, or community. 

Join us at one or all of the webinars in the series designed to support your CPL implementati​on.
