Standards for Awarding Credit for Prior Learning
- Academic credit will only be awarded for those courses directly applicable to curriculum requirements at FRCC and to the student’s declared certificate or degree program listed in the college’s catalog.
- A student may use CPL to fulfill all degree/certificate graduation requirements except for the mandatory 25% residency requirement.
- If pursuing a transfer degree (A.A., A.S., or A.G.S. Articulated degree program), CPL will only be granted for the purpose of satisfying graduation requirements. These credits might not transfer to colleges outside of CCCS. Contact the college to which you intend to transfer to determine their CPL requirements.
- All work assessed for CPL must meet or exceed “C” level work. Minimum cut-off scores on standardized tests are also established to meet the “C” grade level.
