Credit for Prior Learning

Students can exchange credit for life/work experiences through EOU’s Assessment of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) process. APEL provides students the opportunity to document their experience in an academic-friendly format. Visit the EOU APEL page to learn more.

Students can also earn credit through Agency Sponsored Learning (ASL), which provides the opportunity to receive credit from courses and training taken from non-degree-granting organizations such as the military, labor unions, professional and voluntary associations and government agencies. A maximum of 45 ASL credits can be transferred. Learn how it works by visiting the EOU ASL page.
