At University of Maryland University College, our students bring a wealth of experiences—from the workplace and community and volunteer activities—to the classroom. We value the learning you've acquired outside of the classroom, and we offer ways to turn those experiences into credit by demonstrating what you know.
Benefits of Prior Learning

- Save money: Credits awarded through the Prior Learning assessment are evaluated for a fee that is lower than the cost of tuition.
- Gain understanding: The Prior Learning assessment process helps you understand the many ways you have acquired learning through your full- or part-time jobs and community and volunteer activities outside the classroom.
