Not All Learning Happens in the Classroom

WMCC is committed to providing affordable, accessible, high-quality education to help students achieve their educational and professional goals. Because we believe our learners bring with them a unique body of knowledge and skills developed over time, we provide students the opportunity to demonstrate their acquisition of college-level learning gained outside of the traditional classroom setting.

In accordance with the guidelines established by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) and the recommendations made by the American Council on Education (ACE), WMCC provides options for students to progress more quickly toward program or degree completion through earning credit for prior learning, including transfer credit, credit by examination, and credit for experiential learning through prior learning portfolio assessment.
