Does the McGhee Division give credit for prior learning and life experience?
Yes. Experiential learning is a great way to demonstrate how the college-level learning you have achieved through your life experience is equivalent to that of a specific course within your program of study. Students enroll in a two-credit Seminar in Experiential Learning to develop prior learning portfolios on a course-by-course basis. The seminar teaches you how to build a portfolio. You do not pay tuition for credits earned through the portfolio process.
At McGhee, you may earn up to half of your degree by demonstrating learning achieved through prior educational or life experience. There are four credit for prior learning pathways, and your academic advisor will work with you to determine which is right for you, once you are admitted.Bookmark This Link
