Earn College Credit for What You Already Know
The knowledge that you have gained outside the classroom is extremely valuable. At Jackson College we have a process for turning this learning from professional experience into academic credit. You can save time and money as you earn your degree. There are many types of learning that can be evaluated, including learning from:
- Work experience and job skills
- Employer training programs
- Military service
- Independent study
- Volunteer or community service
- Open source courseware study or other self-study
- Other training or skills
Jackson College offers an online course that provides you with the guidance and structure needed to prepare Learning Portfolios that reflect the knowledge and expertise you have learned outside of the classroom. Your completed Portfolio will then be assessed and credits will be awarded based on whether your knowledge matches what you would have learned in college courses. The credits you earn may be directly applied to your degree.
