How it Works


Getting started is a breeze. Create an account, select your target institution, build a profile, search for courses related to your prior learning, and create a request to speak with an advisor.


Your advisor will guide you in creating your application and recommend what course(s) will provide the best opportunity to award you credit for your prior learning experiences.


Once your application is approved, you will build your e-portfolio that a qualified assessor at your target institution will evaluate.
