Southwestern College recognizes that not all learning takes place in a classroom. That's why we offer students the opportunity to earn college credit through Prior Learning Assessment. Students interested in developing a Prior Learning portfolio can demonstrate learning from a variety of experience such as work and volunteer experience, training, and travel.
Southwestern has partnered with Learning Counts, an organization that is dedicated assisting students develop portfolios for review to earn college credit. Learning Counts is part of the Council on Adult Experiential Learning (CAEL) organization.
