Credit for Prior Learning (CPL)
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 college-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. Once the equivalency is determined and posted to the student’s record, it is acceptable in any department/program in which that course meets a degree requirement. CPL credits are posted as transfer work and not counted as hours earned at Wichita State. For more information, visit the Credit for Prior Learning webpage.
