Liberal Studies majors and minors at UWW have the opportunity to pursue academic credit for their prior learning experiences, including paid employment, volunteer work, or military experience.
Students can “challenge” a specific course, or they can seek internship credit.
To pursue this opportunity, please follow these steps:
Once you are accepted into the Credit for Prior Learning Program, you will enroll in an online course in which you will build a portfolio to demonstrate the skills and knowledge you have gained through your experience and how these skills and knowledge relate to the learning objectives for the course or internship for which you are requesting credit.
If you have chosen to request course credit, your completed portfolio will be submitted to an expert in the appropriate field to determine whether or not it can be accepted in substitution for the course requested. If you have chosen to request internship credit, your completed portfolio will be submitted to the Liberal Studies Program Coordinator, to determine whether it is adequate to count in the Liberal Studies "Experiential Learning" category requirement.
