Students come to college from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, some of which may involve college-level learning. Prior learning assessment can help students attain credit for learning they have already mastered outside of the traditional college classroom. Credit received may be applied to many programs of study at Delaware County Community College, allowing students to complete their college education sooner and at a much lower cost.
Assessment counselors will help students identify practical and relevant life experiences, such as participation in professional workshops, volunteer activities, and military or technical training classes, equivalent or closely related to the learning expectations of the College’s courses. Information will also be available about the College-Level Examination Program, credit by examination, transfer of credits from other colleges and portfolio development.
For more information, call Assessment Services at 610-359-5322 any time Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. or Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Or, visit www.dccc.edu/cpl to learn more and watch a video about the program.
