Credit for Prior Learning

You may be eligible to receive credit for required courses if you have previous education, training, credentials, or certifications in your selected field of study.

Articulation is a curricular concept designed to eliminate duplication of instruction and to recognize student achievements from area career and technical schools and comprehensive high schools that are approved by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. Articulated credit only applies to Associate of Applied Science degrees and 32 credit hour certificates. Certain criteria must be met to qualify for articulated credit. Visit the Articulated Credit for Career & Technical Programs webpage for more information.

The purpose of credit by examination is to award college credit for knowledge, skills, and competencies obtained through nontraditional college programs. Credit will be granted for scores at or exceeding 80% for existing career and technical courses in the MACC curriculum as approved by the Dean of Workforce Development and Technical Education. The following conditions apply to Credit by Examination:

  • Applications will only be considered if reasonable proof can be provided indicating that the student has substantial education, training, and work experience related to the course for which the exam is requested.
  • Only one opportunity will be given to test-out for credit in any one course, and the applicant must pay a test fee.
  • Credit by Examination will be awarded after a student has completed 12 college-level credit hours toward a 32 credit hour certificate or an associate of applied science degree.
  • Total credit hours granted to any student through Credit by Examination toward a 32 credit hour certificate or an associate of applied science degree will not exceed 50% of credit hours required.

 

Contact the Workforce Development and Technical Education Department at WDTEOffice@macc.edu for more information.

Credit by Certification may be an option for students enrolled in certain Associate of Applied Science degrees and 32 credit hour certificate programs that have related industry-standard certification or formal apprenticeship training. Credit by Certification will be considered after the student has applied for admission and provided a completed Application for Credit by Certification accompanied by documentation of successfully passing a certified training program.

Credit by Certification will be awarded in accordance with American Council on Education recommendations as published in the National Guide to Educational Credit for Testing Programs and/or other recognized accrediting bodies approved by the Dean of Workforce Development and Technical Education and consisting of, but not limited to, certifications offered by the following bodies:

  • American Welding Society,
  • Cisco Networking Academy,
  • A Department of Labor Approved Apprenticeship Training Program, or
  • MACC non-credit courses conducted to credit students

 

Credit by Certification will be awarded after the student has:

  • Completed 12 college-level credit hours (100-level or above) with a grade of “C” or better;
  • Earned a cumulative GPA of 2.0 in coursework specific to the degree being sought at MACC;
  • Appropriate fees have been paid.

 

The total credit hours granted to any one student through Credit by Certification toward an Associate of Applied Science degree or certificate is up to 50% of credits required. Credit by Certification will be awarded only when it relates specifically to a program of study at MACC.

Contact the Workforce Development and Technical Education Department at WDTEOffice@macc.edu for more information.

Students who have a current nationally-recognized credential may be awarded college credit toward an Associate of Applied Science degree in a related program. The credit hours are awarded on the basis of competencies the individual has gained in the process of achieving the national credential. The following guidelines apply to the granting of college credit to students with a national credential:

  • Meet all criteria for admissions as specified in the College catalog;
  • Make application to the Dean of Workforce Development and Technical Education for college credit by current credential;
  • Provide official documentation of his or her current nationally-recognized credential to the College at the time of the application for credit;
  • Complete 12 credit hours of MACC courses in the related Associate of Applied Science degree before the credit for the credential will be placed on the individual’s official MACC transcript.

 

The individual’s credential must remain current and be documented at the time this credit is awarded.

Contact the Workforce Development and Technical Education Department at WDTEOffice@macc.edu for more information.

Veterans may receive academic credit for military/educational training earned while serving in the armed forces based on evaluation and recommendation from the American Council on Education (ACE). Veterans requesting credit for military experience must submit an official copy of their ACE transcript to the MACC Registrar. This information will then be evaluated by the Registrar and the Dean of Academic Affairs, the Dean of Workforce Development and Technical Education, or the Dean of Health Sciences. Credit will only be awarded for courses which count toward certificate or degree requirements.

Contact the Registrar’s Office at Registrar@macc.edu for more information.

The College may consider other nontraditional learning experiences, such as internships and learning experiences attained through business or industrial training programs, on a case by case basis. The Dean of Academic Affairs, the Dean of Health Sciences, or the Dean of Workforce Development and Technical Education will determine if credit for prior learning should be awarded.
