Credit for prior experiential learning is based on evidence presented by the requested student, and credit is granted neither automatically nor capriciously. In the case of a request for credit for a specific Calvary Chapel University course, the student must show significant evidence that the academic learning objectives for that course
have been sufficiently mastered. In the case of a request for credit the student must demonstrate mastery of the subject(s) through presentation of appropriate supporting materials (e.g., professional training certificates and supporting information regarding program curricula).
Decisions are based on evidence presented in a portfolio developed by the student or through an examination from
an academic department of the University. In the event general, non-course specific credit is granted, the credit will appear on the student’s transcript as “Credit for Prior Learning/Life Experience.” The decision regarding credit granted for prior experiential learning is the responsibility of the Dean of the School in which the subject area/academic discipline resides. The academic Dean may, at his or her discretion, involve faculty members or others in making the final determination regarding credit to be awarded. The Dean’s decision is final and is not
subject to appeal.
Along with this form, students must identify and attach:
- An essay/narrative documenting life experiences relating to credit;
- Indicate how your life experiences relate to specific course goals and descriptions;
- Provide documentation (certifications, proof of seminars, course grades, letters, etc.) supporting the
application for this life experience; and
- A resume.
