Credit by Portfolio Assessment

Not all college-level learning takes place in the classroom.

You still need a degree but you already have college level learning acquired from experiences at work, volunteering in the community, military service, job training, independent reading, open source course-ware study and hobbies.

Some people express themselves better in written form (via papers and essays), than they do on multiple-choice tests. If this sounds like you, consider earning the credits you deserve by putting together a written academic portfolio.

What's required for you to complete a Portfolio Assessment?

  • Adequate college level writing skills
  • Time for developing the portfolio
  • Commitment to the portfolio process
  • Pay the assessment fees (currently 50% of the current in-county tuition rate)
