Undergraduate students may earn credits for the knowledge or skills they have mastered outside the classroom through volunteer work, employment, travel programs, organizations or other comparable sources.
Students are required to meet with an academic counselor to discuss these options.
Prior to applying for the Portfolio Assessment option, students are required to successfully complete ENG1020 English Composition, or a higher-level writing course.
Students must complete the mandatory online Portfolio Development Seminar before submitting a finalized portfolio for review. While there are no regularly scheduled meetings, students are expected to participate in the seminar activities that lead toward the completion of the portfolio. The individual components of the portfolio are covered in self-paced segments.
Portfolios must be submitted within six months of the application date. Completed portfolios are submitted electronically to the appropriate department designee for review. Students are notified of the outcome once the assessment is completed. If credit is denied for a portfolio, the student has 10 days upon notification to file a written appeal for review.
Once the seminar is completed, eligible students, in consultation with an academic counselor, may submit additional portfolios.
