A currently enrolled student at Roane State may petition for college-level credit for learning acquired through documented work or life experience in the field in which a degree is being pursued via an experiential learning portfolio.
Experiential learning credit may be approved as college course credit if it is comparable to a designated credit experience and is consistent with Roane State's mission. This credit cannot exceed a total of 30 hours. Students interested in seeking prior learning credit should first contact their faculty advisor or the Dean of Student Academic Services for guidance on the process.
Credit awarded will depend on the assurance that the course work and learning outcomes are at the collegiate level and comparable to the college credit course and/or the college program. When the evaluation is complete and the appropriate academic signatures are in place, the form will be sent to the Admissions and Records Office for the recording of credit. A special fee for experiential learning credit is assessed. Experiential learning or proficiency credit will not apply toward meeting residency requirements for graduation.
