Ways to Petition for Credit for Prior Learning
It is possible for SVCC students to petition for credit for prior learning. A maximum of 30 credits gained
through any prior learning can be used toward a degree and up to 50 percent of the credits earned
through prior learning may be applied toward a certificate at SVCC. Note that acceptance of credit for
prior learning varies among transfer institutions.
Method Credit by Certification, License, or Registry
Students who have successfully completed state and/or national certification, licensing and registry
examinations may request SVCC course credits. The credit must be applied in a program in which the
student is currently enrolled.
The Credit by Certification, License, or Registry form must be completed to request credit recognition for
a state or national exam passage. The appropriate academic Dean and the Vice-President of Academics
and Student Services will make the final determination to award credit.
If approved $20 per College Credit will be payable to the Sauk Valley Community College Business Office.
