Life Experience allows students to earn three credits for “prior learning” that has taken place outside of the classroom.
Holy Apostles College & Seminary limits the number of Life Experience credits to a maximum of 9 credits applied towards the Associate of Arts degree or 15 credits towards the Bachelor of Arts degree. Any Life Experience credits earned count towards the total number of transferable credits allowed.
To determine whether the student has the knowledge necessary to earn Life Experience credits, Holy Apostles requires the student to take the final exam of the course for which he or she is asking to receive credits. This will show that the student knows the material as it is taught at Holy Apostles. Upon earning a passing grade, the student will earn 3 credits for that course.
The student must pay 50% of the Holy Apostles tuition for each 3-credit course. The student must also pay an additional $100 per course for the professor who corrects the final exam.
