Credit for Prior Learning
Academic credit can be earned for learning that has taken place through community activities, military experience, non-credit courses, private or public sector training, or even extensive in-depth reading and research.
This is intended for adults, rather than for students entering college directly after high school.
Credit awarded in recognition of prior learning is in all cases treated as transfer credit, inasmuch as it is based upon learning that took place previously.
Taking Courses Elsewhere
Once you’re matriculated at SUNY Brockport, you may still take courses at other colleges and universities whether in summer school or as a visiting student. Learn more about this process here.
