Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) recognizes that you may be able to earn college credit for learning acquired through life experiences. The CPL program provides opportunities to earn credit for prior learning.
Credit may be earned in a variety of ways including independent study, directed study, and portfolio assessment. Credit may also be awarded through credentialing for certifications and trainings, such as the Fire Academy, EMT, and military. QCC also collaborates with the Worcester Art Museum for the award of credit.
Students interested in any of the Credit for Prior Learning programs need to contact the office and, in most cases, set up an appointment.
