Enrolled Penn College students have the opportunity to earn credit by demonstrating skills and knowledge obtained through prior courses or through specific work or living situations. This type of credit may be achieved by
- successfully challenging a specific course through credit-by-exam, a scored assessment (written and/or practical examination) of the student’s knowledge and skills relating to the course’s learning objectives.
- successfully documenting work/life skills and experience that are equal to a course’s learning objectives.
Students who earn credit through these options save time and money while working toward their degrees.
More information about the process to apply for credit-by-exam or work/life experience credit is available on the Alternative Credit Options page of the College Catalog.
