Work/Life Credit


CELA awards credit for relevant work and/or life experiences that reflect a student’s specialized skills and knowledge that are equivalent to ICAF or ICAT Certification Program coursework requirements. Our work/life experience course credit option and evaluation process are a way for students to receive academic credit for knowledge and experience gained outside the classroom. Does not apply to all courses.


Work/Life Experiences

Experience and knowledge acquired over time through one’s career, volunteer work, and community involvement are examples of areas students can explore for possible credit.


Keep in mind that having had a particular job isn’t enough. Work/life credit, when given, is for student experiences (1) that would be something the student would have learned through taking a college class and (2) that are equal to the stated objectives for a related CELA online course.
