  • Prior Learning Assessment

    Through the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process, undergraduate students may be able to apply relevant learning, work and/or life experiences toward college credit at Ohio Dominican. There are several forms of PLA credit:

    College Level Examination Program

    The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) allows students to earn college credit without having to attend class. By taking the CLEP exam, students can demonstrate the knowledge they have obtained through independent study, or prior life, work or cultural experiences. These credits do not count toward the Ohio Dominican University's residency requirements.  

    View ODU's CLEP policy.

    American Council on Education

    The American Council on Education (ACE) has published guidelines for credit recommendations documenting certain forms of military or corporate training. ODU follows the ACE guide recommendations for credit. These credits do not count toward the Ohio Dominican University's residency requirements.

    Portfolio Assessment

    One of the most accepted methods of earning credit involves compiling a portfolio of prior learning. A portfolio is a formal collection of artifacts prepared by the student and submitted to the University as part of a petition requesting credit or recognition for learning outside the college classroom. 

    Students interested in learning more about the portfolio process should contact the Adult & Continuing Education office at adult@ohiodominican.edu.
