Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) offers students several ways to earn college credit for knowledge, skills, and abilities that have been attained before enrolling in college. Requirements may be fulfilled in two ways:
The awarding of college credit towards a degree
The waiving of prerequisites without credit

Students planning on transferring to another of the community colleges in the Minnesota State System may have their prior learning credits transferred to that community college as long as the credits are applicable to the degree or certificate the student has declared. Check with your transfer institution prior to working on CPL credit options.
