Earn College Credit for What You Already Know
Not all college-level learning takes place in the classroom. LearningCounts helps you create a learning portfolio to demonstrate your expertise for undergraduate college credit. The process is simple. Our College Credit Specialists help you identify the fastest path to degree completion, which may include taking exams for college credit or enrolling in a portfolio development course. Our portfolio development courses help you showcase what you’ve learned from professional work and training, military experience, or open-source learning from the web. These courses are designed to help you demonstrate that your learning is worth the college credit you need to succeed.
Once you complete a portfolio, your work will be assessed by expert faculty and awarded undergraduate college credit. You can earn up to 12 credit hours for each portfolio!
How do I use LearningCounts?
Learn how to create a Learning Portfolio that demonstrates the knowledge you have accumulated outside the college classroom by taking one of our two classes:
The Instructor-Led Course is a 6-week online course that is worth 3 credit hours. You work with an instructor and a small cohort of students on assignments every week (An optional 2-week workshop is available for extra portfolio building help.)
3 - Portfolio Development and Assessment
Using what you’ve learned in our courses, you’ll create an online learning portfolio that matches your knowledge and experience to college-equivalent courses. Once you’ve completed your portfolio, a member of our expert faculty will assess it and recommend it for college credit. You can earn up to 12 undergraduate credit hours for each portfolio you submit. Check with your advisor or registrar to be sure your credits will be accepted.
