2016-2017 Catalog

Life Credit Portfolio

Procedures approved by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) are used to allow students to satisfy Strayer University’s undergraduate course requirements through a Life Credit Portfolio (LCP).  Credit for experiential learning is applied on a course-by-course basis to undergraduate courses when it appears that learning resulting from experience is comparable to the content of specific courses.  No more than 30% of credit in a student’s degree program may be awarded from life or work experience, including the Life Credit Portfolio.  LCP credits do not fulfill residency requirements.  Information about LCP preparation procedures is available via Strayer website www.strayer.edu.  See the Fees section for applicable charges.

Students must meet at least 70% of the course learning objectives.  The LCP will be graded Pass or Fail.
