Healthcare Education : Credit for Prior Learning

The Maricopa Community Colleges support the concept of lifelong learning to meet the individual growth needs of the diverse group of students it serves. The Maricopa Community Colleges also recognize that learning takes place in a variety of situations and circumstances and that many students have significant, demonstrable learning from experiences outside the traditional academic environment. In alignment with this philosophy, eligible students may have opportunities to receive credit for non-college, prior-learning.

The Allied Health Credit for Prior Learning Handbook For Students (500k pdf) outlines some of the options for Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) that may be available through individual programs. A more detailed faculty version of the handbook is also available.

Note that not all programs may offer these options. Make sure to check with your academic advisor or program director for more information.
