Credit by Portfolio

Return to: Prior Learning Credit 

Walden undergraduate students have the opportunity for prior learning assessment by portfolio review through a program facilitated by the Council for Adult & Experiential Learning (CAEL) via LearningCounts.org. Through this affiliation, students will be able to speak with an advisor regarding the best avenues for pursuing prior learning credit, register for a course that will assist in the creation of their portfolios, and have those portfolios assessed for credit. Any credits awarded would be provided on an American Council on Education (ACE) transcript or a National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) transcript. Students seeking prior learning credit by portfolio should work with their academic advisor to complete a Letter of Permission and submit it to the office of Admissions in advance of course registration.
