What is Prior Learning?

College-level learning acquired through non-college experience is called prior learning. Credit for prior learning is not granted for the experiences you have had, but rather for the learning that has resulted from those experiences. Students cannot use Prior Learning Assessment credit to replace an unsatisfactory grade in their GPA. However, students who attempt and pass a form of Prior Learning Assessment credit may still use this satisfactory credit to meet program, degree, and graduation requirements. NKU Prior Learning Assessment credit will only be granted for students who have enrolled at NKU.
