Special Credit Prior Learning Assessment

Students who have at least five (5) years of relevant experience and can demonstrate evidence of prior learning of the content taught in this course can apply for special credit for the course by developing and presenting a professional portfolio that demonstrates the knowledge and skills taught in this course.

Portfolios will be reviewed by two (2) TCM instructors, and if the work is deemed B or better by both instructors, will count for special credit. 

  • Special credit must be applied for only during the student's first or second year at IUPUI.
  • Application for special credit for the course must be completed at least one semester prior to the graduation semester in case the portfolio does not earn a B or better and the student is required to enroll in the course.
  • No special credit will be awarded for experience or professional work without a portfolio that provides evidence of prior learning.

To obtain the portfolio requirements and special credit assessment application directions for this course, contact the TCM Program Director.
