Assessment of Prior Learning
To expedite graduation and make early progress on a degree or certificate, learning acquired through work or other non-college experiences may be submitted for college credit through the Assessment of Prior Learning (APL) course. Students describe and document their experiential learning in a portfolio, which is then reviewed for credit by a committee of faculty and professionals. The credit they recommend may be transferred Vermont Tech and applied to one of our programs.
