Credit for Prior Experience & Education

UVU offers credit for prior learning (CPL) to enable students to enrich or accelerate their programs of study. CPL is inclusive and validates students' prior education, making education more affordable and accessible.

Credit for Prior Learning is for adult learners who have gained significant knowledge, skills and abilities outside the traditional classroom that may be equivalent to college-level coursework. Credentialed faculty in each discipline will establish the course criteria and assess fulfillment to determine credit awarded.
