Course Description:

This course provides students with the opportunity to request credit for college-level learning gained by professional experience, training, or independent study. Students will explore, articulate, and document their learning by developing a focused portfolio requesting up to twelve course credits and four practicum credits in a specific academic discipline. Upon successful completion of the course, credit requests will be reviewed by the VSC Office of Prior Learning Assessment. Recommended prior learning: English Composition or equivalent writing skills, fundamental computer skills. Students must consult an academic advisor before enrolling.

Essential Objectives:

1. Explore and discuss career, educational, and personal goals.
2. Describe and explain the difference between learning and experience.
3. Identify and articulate college-level learning in a specific curricular area, gained by experience, training, or independent study.
4. Collect and present appropriate documentation of college-level learning in a specific curricular area.
5. Prepare and submit a portfolio for faculty review.

Academic Honesty: CCV has a commitment to honesty and excellence in academic work and expects the same from all students. Academic dishonesty, or cheating, can occur whenever you present -as your own work- something that you did not do. You can also be guilty of cheating if you help someone else cheat. Being unaware of what constitutes academic dishonesty (such as knowing what plagiarism is) does not absolve a student of the responsibility to be honest in his/her academic work. Academic dishonesty is taken very seriously and may lead to dismissal from the College.
