Credit For Learning

The College of Professional Studies recognizes that students experience learning outside of formal education. Sources of this informal education include:

  • Employment
  • Seminars
  • Corporate training
  • Military experience
  • Civic involvement
  • Self-directed study

To take advantage of what you already have learned, enroll in ENG 2220 Credit for Learning. This course is designed to guide you through the process of writing a narrative paper and assembling documentation. You will compile a portfolio to show how your learning corresponds to a course offered at Indiana Tech. Upon submitting a portfolio, a faculty member will determine whether you have demonstrated sufficient knowledge to be awarded credit. After completing ENG 2220, you may earn up to 36 credit hours through the Credit for Learning Program.

Course guidelines explain the objectives of each course and provide suggestions for documenting experience or knowledge of a subject. Browse the listings and see how many portfolios you might be able to submit for credit.
