Credit for Prior Learning
NOVA recognizes and appreciates the fact that college-level learning can be gained outside the classroom. We also realize that students are involved in much more than just school - particularly adult students who have careers, families, and other responsibilities.
Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) is a growing program throughout colleges and universities around the world. CPL can help students save money and earn a college degree faster.
Experiential learning can be evaluated for the purpose of awarding and gaining college credits through a process called prior learning assessment (PLA).
