Credit for Experience
General Information

The main criteria utilized by the institution are as follows:

  • Relevance of the learning to the student’s educational goal.
  • Its qualification for consideration as college-level learning.
  • Acceptable verification that the learning did take place.
  • The experience is related to specific professional/technical objectives

The College requires students who are applying for advanced standing to describe the learning that merits college credit (see application).  It is not sufficient to describe only the activities the student has engaged in.  It is important to translate work and training experience into relevant college-level learning within the framework of the student’s educational goal.  In applying for advanced standing, it is of central importance for the individual to describe what has been learned.  It is necessary, but not sufficient, to describe the job held while this learning took place. The student should specifically state what knowledge and skills were gained as a result of work performed in that capacity.

When sufficient evidence is presented and the learning is evaluated by a committee of academic discipline members, credit may be granted.

Credit earned in this fashion will satisfy degree and certificate requirement in the same manner as credit earned through regular class attendance, subject to the following provisions:

  • Credit earned in this manner will not satisfy any part of the residence requirement.
  • The student must be currently enrolled in Wayne County Community College District and have accumulated at least 15 WCCCD credits before this credit will be recorded.
  • Credit for experience cannot be used to meet academic group requirements.

Procedure

Student acquires a Credit for Experience application.  Prior to completing the application, the student must meet with his/her appropriate academic administrator or campus advisor to review the appropriateness of requesting credit for experience.

Student completes application and attachs all necessary documentation.

Student submits application to the Instruction and Accountability office for approval from the appropriate academic administrator.

The Educational Affairs office will notify the student of the final recommendation within four weeks.

Upon the approval of the appropriate academic administrator:

  • The student presents the form to the cashier and pays the fee of one-half the normal tuition rate. $10.00 processing fee to the cashier.
  • The cashier computes the charge, collects funds, stamps all copies of the form set as “PAID” and retains one copy.
  • The student retains one copy stamped “PAID” and returns the remaining copies to the District Records Office.
  • The student records office enters the credit as “CFE” into the computer master transcript file and retains the original in the student’s hard copy file.
