Credit for Prior Learning
A non-refundable processing fee is charged to administer credit exams or evaluate occupational experience. If credits are awarded, a fee is charged per each 1 credit earned.
Credits awarded through credit for prior learning will not be used to calculate GPA.
Credits earned from credit for prior learning evaluations are not included in a student's semester credit load; these are considered credits already earned and are not eligible for financial aid. However, these credits will count toward the student's overall length of eligibility for financial aid programs.
Credit for Prior Learning by Exam
Students want to earn credit by exam if they:
- have extensive high school work above the normal curriculum that may deem taking a similar MPTC course redundant
- have developed the competencies via work experience
- have taken similar coursework at another college and cannot transfer the credit but can demonstrate the competencies
- have taken similar courses in an apprenticeship, vocational, civil or military training program.
Oral or written exams or activities to demonstrate lab skills may be given.
Credit for Prior Learning through Occupational Experience
Students can request an evaluation of their skills gained from work experience, military service or other training courses. They should be prepared to present documentation of these experiences. A written statement may be required to document occupational skills attained.
Contact the program dean for inquiries regarding Occupational Experience.
Transfer Credits from College
Moraine Park accepts post-secondary credits from North Central accredited colleges, Wisconsin Technical College System colleges, and USAFI credits with a "C" grade or higher for course content similar to a Moraine Park course. Granting of transfer credit is at the discretion of the dean and cannot exceed the number of credits designated for the similar Moraine Park course. There is no fee for the award of such credit.
Call 800-472-4554 and ask to speak with an Admission Counselor about transfer of credits.
Transfer Credits from High School
High school students may earn technical college or advanced standing credit by successfully completing certain high school courses. Find out more about Career Prep and Youth Apprenticeship Courses.
