Life Experience Credit

Life Experience Credit is earned from an evaluation of a portfolio of documents or other evidence that demonstrates college-level learning through experiences of life.  JSCC uses CAEL (The Council for Adult & Experiential Learning) as a third party vendor for assessment of this documentation and will award credit based on the ACE (American Council on Education) recommendations provided at the end of the evaluation process. 

The website www.learningcounts.org provides more information on the options and costs of creating your portfolio. 

For more information on this process to see if this is the PLA path for you, please contact
