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:

1 - Get Advice from a College Credit Specialist. Together, you’ll determine the most affordable and fastest path to earn college credit for what you already know.

2 - Enroll in one of our portfolio development courses.
  • The Do-It-Yourself Course(DIY) is a self-paced online, non-credit course that you complete on your own schedule. Download the Syllabus or try the first two modules of the DIY course for free!

  • 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 3 undergraduate credit hours for each portfolio you submit. Check with your advisor or registrar to be sure your credits will be accepted.
