What is Prior Learning?

Walden realizes adult students come to the university with any number of learning experiences. These demonstrable skills and competencies may be evaluated and applied toward academic credit. The prior learning may have taken place in a formal educational setting or without the support of an institution of higher learning. To support students as they work toward an accelerated timeline for degree completion, Walden offers a variety of means for students to earn credit through prior learning.
