A prior learning portfolio is an extensive written presentation of evidence assembled by the student and reviewed by a faculty member under the direction of the Office of Academic Affairs. The award of prior learning portfolio credit is dependent on relevancy to courses in the student’s CMCC degree program; including general education, major and elective courses. The portfolio includes several major sections including a thorough resume, a narrative summary of relevant work and learning experiences, demonstrated skills and training in specialized areas, and applied knowledge and competencies in a specific course for which CMCC credit is available. Each component in a portfolio plays a role in demonstrating proficiency of learning objectives in a course. Students submit a separate portfolio for each course for which they seek to earn credit. Certain components of an original portfolio may be used in multiple submissions.
