Credit for Prior Learning

Germanna believes that a student’s prior college-level learning and experience can be recognized and applied to their program of study, potentially saving time and money.

Credit for prior learning is only applicable towards curriculum requirements at Germanna and does not fulfill the College’s residency requirement.

If a student plans to transfer, it is critical that the student work with their faculty advisor and/or counselor with regard to the transfer policies at the destination school. Credit for prior learning may be obtained through transfer credit or certain exams.
