Course Equivalency Credit
Course Equivalency Credit, also known as life-learning papers, identifies significant learning from
past experiences for which the student has had no formal training. The student must articulate the
experience and learning outcomes. Papers are typically 15 to 20 pages in length and may earn a
maximum of 3 credit hours.
Professional Schools and Training Credit
In partnership with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning, the American Council on
Education, and the National College Credit Recommendation Service, Trevecca awards credit for
learning which has occurred through professional schools and training programs which have been
evaluated for college-level credit. In the event that no credit recommendation exists, students have
the opportunity to take the Documenting and Describing Learning course, ITD3000, to receive credit for non-
traditional learning. Students will work with an advisor to enroll in the aforementioned course upon admission to an adult studies program.
Credit may be given for military education. An official record of the training is required and may be
obtained at https://jst.doded.mil.
