Kaskaskia College will host an Information Session concerning Prior Learning Experience Opportunities at all education centers this fall.
Prior Learning Experiences is an avenue for students seeking credit for life experiences (including military service) or formal education. Through this individualized process, Kaskaskia College faculty or instructional staff evaluate a Prior Learning Portfolio, a written record of appropriate documentation submitted by the student according to established College procedures for equivalency to course taught at the institution.
Information sessions are scheduled for the KC Main Campus and at all Education Center this fall from 6:00 to 7:00 p.m. Dates and places include: Salem Education Center on Thursday, October 23; KC Main Campus on Monday, October 28; Trenton Education Center on Tuesday, October 12; Nashville Education Center on Thursday, November 14; Greenville Education Center on Monday, November 18; and at the Vandalia Campus on Tuesday, November 19; Crisp Technology Center on Wednesday, November 20.
For each hour of credit awarded for Prior Learning Experience an equal number of hours must be earned in residence at KC before the PLE credit is posted on the transcript. The maximum number of hours awarded for prior learning experience, proficiency examination, and other standardized testing may not exceed 50% of the total credit hours needed to complete the certificate or degree program the student is pursuing. Student should be advised that some educational institutions may not accept non-traditional credit as transferable coursework. Non-traditional credit will be granted in accordance with established procedures.
