Credit for Prior Learning Workshops

In order to assist our students in preparing materials for credit petition, the Prior Learning Assessment Office holds regularly scheduled workshops throughout the year. These workshops are offered during convenient evening hours and at no cost.

Prior Learning Assessment workshops cover options for prior learning credit as well as procedures for assembling a portfolio and preparing experiential learning essays. Will will also assist you in identifying college-level learning experiences.  Workshops are kept small to allow for individualized attention. Students are invited to bring documentation or other materials pertaining to non-collegiate learning experiences for discussion. Most workshops consist of a series of one-on-one appointments; however, group sessions may be necessary depending on the number of students registered.  Both current and prospective students are welcome to attend.

We hold workshops monthly in Region I (SW WI), alternating between the Brookfield and Kenosha locations. Students attending on the main campus should contact the main office directly and schedule an individual appointment during regular business hours. Evening hours are available by appointment as well.

Visits to Madison and Beloit (Region 2) also alternate on a monthly basis.

Minnesota site visits occur approximately twice a year.  Individual appointments can be accommodated during the day as well as early evening. Classroom visits can also be scheduled.

The Prior Learning Assessment Office often coordinates visits, particularly in Regions 2 & 3, with Career Services.  Learn more about Career Services and upcoming events at the Career Services homepage.
