Transfer Credit and Credit for Other Prior Learning

Washtenaw Community College recognizes that students come to college with competencies obtained from prior learning experiences such as previous education, training, or work experience. To receive credit, a prior learning experience must be verified. If it is documented and evaluated to be equivalent to college-level coursework, it is the College's policy to allow equivalent credit to be granted to the student if appropriate to their WCC program of study. The following methods may be used to verify equivalency credit: transcript evaluation, credit by examination, portfolio evaluation, advanced placement testing, and articulation credit. Credit for prior learning will be evaluated and posted on the student's transcript only after the student has earned one or more credit hours at WCC and will not apply toward satisfying the minimum credits in residence required for graduation.

The credit does not count as part of a student's credit load for any given semester and is not computed into the grade point average. In most cases, non-traditional credit earned for prior learning experiences will not transfer to other colleges or universities. Other institutions will want to evaluate the transcripts from all colleges previously attended when awarding transfer credit.
