Credit for Prior Learning

Wichita State University encourages students to seek credit for knowledge they may have acquired in a variety of ways through the Credit for Prior Learning program (CPL). Students who have had graduate-level education through traditional or nontraditional means, and can demonstrate achievement, may be eligible to earn credit by following WSU’s Credit for Prior Learning process. Departments have varying policies as to any CPL that will be deemed equivalent to their courses. The equivalency framework must be approved by the Graduate Council prior to being used. Once the equivalency is determined and posted to the student’s record, it is only acceptable in the department/program in which the Graduate Council approved it. The Graduate Council may impose a recertification timeframe for approved CPL equivalencies. CPL credits are posted as transfer work and not counted as hours earned at Wichita State.
