LIFE EXPERIENCE CREDITS

Universities do not award credit for experience, but rather for college-level learning that has resulted from life experience. The learning must be documented and/or demonstrated in order to be considered for credit.

Many students have several years of work experience, making it quite possible that this work experience has resulted in college-level learning. By evaluating the life experience of the applicant, Aidan University gives students an opportunity to document and potentially receive academic credit for credit-worthy skills and/or knowledge gained outside the classroom environment. Ministry-related activity (as either a lay- person or a member of the clergy), military service and training, professional development seminars, volunteer service, independent or self-directed study, and work-related training are examples of experiences that may be considered for evaluation.  Undergraduate students may be eligible for advanced standing based upon life experience credit upon completion of an examination. Life experience credit is available at the undergraduate level only. When applying for admission, those students who desire consideration for advanced standing should request this in their cover letter. All information submitted for life experience credit must be verifiable. Potential credit for experiential learning is limited to a maximum of 15 credit hours and is available on the undergraduate level (AA, BA).
