Credit for Prior Experience & Education

Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) is for adult learners who have gained significant knowledge, skills and abilities outside the traditional classroom that may be equivalent to college-level coursework. UVU offers CPL to enable students to enrich or accelerate their programs of study. Credentialed faculty in each discipline will establish the course criteria and assess fulfillment to determine credit awarded.
