Earned & Learned Credit

MAKE THE MOST OF WHAT YOU ALREADY KNOW.

As a working adult, you've already gained a wealth of experience relevant to your career and your education. Perhaps you took previous college courses, served in the Military, took formal professional training or certification, or speak multiple languages.

Whatever your unique skills and previous learning experiences may be, the Western International University® (West) team of education professionals is dedicated to helping you maximize credit for what you already know. We'll assist you in transferring accredited post-secondary course credits you've already earned, as well as exploring your options for Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) to request evaluation of your present knowledge for potential equivalent college credit toward your West degree.

Complete information can be found in the University Policies, Transfer of Credit section of the Western International University Catalog.
