Prior Learning Credits

Save time—students can earn their degree more quickly.

Save money—students may earn up to 30 undergraduate credits at no cost.

Cleary University recognizes that students gain knowledge and skills in a variety of ways. Examples include work settings, professional organizations, travel, avocations, leadership positions, volunteering, workplace training, military service, etc. When learning takes place in a non-traditional learning environment (not documented on a college transcript), and is equivalent to college-level learning, Cleary University offers several options for documentation of academic credit up to a maximum of 30 undergraduate credits. Please note that the emphasis for granting credit is on what is learned, rather than what is experienced.
