Credit for Prior Learning
At Delta, your experience counts! You may earn academic credit for prior learning in many areas of study at Delta College. Credit-By-Portfolio is designed for students who have gained, through related work experience, learning that may be equivalent to content taught in actual college courses.
Credit-By-Portfolio: an individualized process where you submit a portfolio application, resume, personal manuscript and supporting documentation of your prior learning for faculty review and evaluation in courses you believe you have the knowledge, background and skills. A $25 per credit hour attempted fee is charged prior to portfolio materials being submitted to the appropriate academic division. If you successfully complete a portfolio, the earned credits will be recorded on your transcript. For questions or information contact Counseling/Advising and Career Services D102.
