CREDIT FOR LIFE EXPERIENCE RESULTING IN COLLEGE-LEVEL
Universities do not award credit for experience, but
rather for college-level learning that has resulted
from life experience. The learning must be documented
and/or demonstrated in order to be considered for
credit. Many students have several years of work experience, making it quite possible that this work
experience has resulted in college-level learning. By
evaluating the life experience of the applicant,
Brendan University gives students an opportunity to
document and potentially receive academic credit for
credit-worthy skills and/or knowledge gained outside
the classroom environment. Ministry-related activity
(either as a lay person or a member of the clergy),
military service and training, professional
development seminars, volunteer service, independent
or self-directed study, and work-related training are
examples of experiences that may be considered for
evaluation. Undergraduate students may be eligible for
advanced standing based upon life experience credit
upon completion of an examination. Life experience
credit is available at the undergraduate level only.
All information submitted for life experience credit
must be verifiable. Potential credit for
experiential learning is limited to a maximum of 15
