Credit for Prior Learning
Prior learning is defined as academic knowledge gained through work experience, military service, community involvement, or independent study.
Fort Lewis College only allows demonstration of prior learning for military service and independent study.
Learning through independent study can be demonstrated through credit by examination.
Learning through military service can be demonstrated by submitting a written request for an evaluation of credits for military service to the Registrar’s Office. The DD 214 form, military transcript, and the credit recommendation from the American Council on Education must be attached to the request.
