Prior Learning Credit

Students attending Camden County College may earn college credit for a variety of learning experiences that were achieved outside of the traditional college setting. For example, students who can document knowledge acquired while in the military, workplace, advanced courses in high school, or non-traditional course work may submit official documentation for an evaluation or request a test that demonstrates college level knowledge in a particular area. 

 

Students who wish to achieve credit this way should look closely at the credits needed to finish their degree, and how their prior learning experiences may satisfy some of the courses they are required to take.
