Lifetime Learning and Experiential Learning Credit
 

Many accredited academic institutions are now making provision for students to gain college credit for skills and knowledge gained outside the college classroom.


Some of the life experiences which are now being recognized as legitimate learning activities are on-the-job learning, non-credit post-secondary programs, significant volunteer social work, executive leadership, and other experiences that parallel academic study programs, as well as general knowledge gained through life experiences.


Inter-Continental Christian University believes that students who are experienced in a phase of ministry, or who have mastered such areas of knowledge as specific portions of the Bible, certain theological truths, or general knowledge, should be allowed to prove such mastery and gain advanced standing in their degree programs. This plan for the granting of credit for prior learning applies only to the degree program, not to the institute program. If a studentís knowledge in a specific subject area is similar to that described in the catalog for a Inter-Continental Christian University course and that learning can be documented. The student may submit a Petition for College Credit, giving the detailed information as requested.


When the petition and supporting documentation are received, they will be reviewed by the Admissions and Advanced Standing Committee, which will:

  •  Evaluate the applicability of the studentís life experience and training to
    the specifically related course work,
     
  •  Determine the equivalent credit which can be granted,
     
  • Propose a degree plan listing the remaining course work required for the
    degree.


Through this process, the student may earn up to 32 credits or 25% of the 120 credits required for the BA degree (16 credits toward the 60 required for an AA). No fee is charged for the evaluation of a studentís credit-for-prior-learning portfolio however, you must be a registered student to take advantage of this opportunity.

A credit-for-prior-learning tuition fee of $100 per credit will be charged for credit gained in this manner. The student will be notified of the action of the Committee.
 

Credit for Prior Learning may not substitute for the 32 hours of credit required to be taken through direct enrollment in Inter-Continental University courses. Strict guidelines must be followed in this process in order to safeguard the academic integrity of the University and to maintain the standards required by the accrediting association. Write to Inter-Continental University for a credit-for- prior-learning packet, providing full details for submitting the required portfolio.
