Credit for Prior Learning by Exam Policy

Credit for Prior Learning by Exam is a means for students to earn credit for a course to fulfill degree requirements by successfully passing a comprehensive examination administered by the college. The exam assesses skills and knowledge of specific course content and is a substitute for completing the usual requirements of a course.

Students may attempt Credit by Exam if they:

  • Have extensive high school work above the normal curriculum that may deem taking a similar MPTC course redundant.
  • Have developed the competencies via work experience.
  • Have taken similar coursework at another college and cannot transfer the credit but can demonstrate the competencies.
  • Have taken similar courses in an apprenticeship, vocational, civil or military training program.
