Prior Learning Assessment

Students can speed up their education through credit for prior learning.

Invest In UIS

Undergraduate and graduate students with extensive paid work, community service or volunteerism, and other non-classroom learning experiences may earn credit in appropriate academic areas.

Credit for Prior Learning is now Prior Learning Assessment.  Our Department is now Internships and Prior Learning Services and we are a part of the Center for Academic Success, located on the fourth floor of Brookens Library.  Things are changing.  Stop by to see what is new. 

For Students

  • The Portfolio
  • The Student Form.  It is available on the same page (Under Students, then under Forms).

What’s New

What Our Students Say

At first I was skeptical at what I could get out of a primarily online class that results in such a large project. I can see the benefit of the discussions and maybe its more the students in the class but there is a click to everything we talk about. We can go out on a tangent and yet reel ourselves back in with the topic. I have talked about everything and there seems to be no boundaries in what you can talk about. With the diversity in age and background the discussions can go on for days and they are useful. The portfolio is not as intimidating now as it seemed at first. I am happy I am in the class and can definitely see a need for a break from the traditional classroom environment. This is a whole new learning style for me and it works.
