Individuals come to college from a variety of backgrounds and experiences, some of which may involve college-level learning. Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) is the evaluation and assessment of an individual’s life learning for college credit, certification, or advanced standing toward future education or training. CPL is a process used by regulatory bodies to evaluate skills and knowledge acquired outside the classroom for the purpose of recognizing competence against a given set of standards, competencies or learning outcomes. Equivalent credit is awarded through a variety of methods; each school or department at IUPUI determines its own process. Complete the form below to inquire about CPL.
Your completed and approved CPL results in credits for approved courses on your transcript. See IU Policy ACA-60 for details.
