College Credit for What You Already Know

At LearningCounts you can build an undergraduate portfolio demonstrating your knowledge and expertise (learned outside the classroom) to earn college credit. We offer two online courses that will help you align your learning (from work, military, or volunteering) to a college course, and show you how to build a portfolio to earn college credit. Contact a College Credit Specialist to find out if LearningCounts portfolio assessment is right for you.

Not all college-level learning takes place in the classroom. LearningCounts can help you earn college credit by demonstrating your expertise from career, military, or volunteer service with Learning Portfolios. After you complete one of our courses, you can submit portfolios for assessment to earn undergraduate college credit.

Portfolio Development and Assessment

Both courses guide you in building an online Learning Portfolio that matches your knowledge and expertise to a college course. You must complete one of our portfolio development courses before submitting a portfolio.

When you hear get college credit for life experience, it can seem to good to be true. We do not evaluate experience, we evaluate your learning: learning on the job, through professional training, military and volunteer experience, or open source courses on the web (MOOCS).
