Exam-based Professional Certifications

Although most prior learning assessment options through the Department of Technology Leadership and Communication (TLC) are only available to undergraduate students who are admitted and in good academic standing (GPA above a 2.0) in a program in the School of Engineering and Technology, any IUPUI student who holds a current professional certification that maps to learning outcomes taught in select Organizational Leadership (OLS) topics may request college credit for comparable course offerings:  

  • Human Resource Management (SHRM-CP, PHR/SPHR, Assurance of Learning)
  • Project Management (PMI, CAP-M, or other PMI verified coursework)
  • Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA 30+)
  • Lean Six Sigma (credit varies by level)
  • Certified Quality Engineering

Important Note: OLS faculty will review active student records and transcripts before requesting award of college credit for professional certifications. Student may not receive duplication of college credit on their transcript through prior learning assessment processes.
