Credit For Your Experience & Prior Learning
York County Community College recognizes several pathways for the assessment of prior learning, which includes learning that was not obtained in the traditional classroom setting such as work and volunteer experience, military training, workshops, professional certifications, etc.
The college awards credit for examinations based on current American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations. Please discuss your options during the admissions process for consideration in degree planning. The final decision regarding acceptance of all prior learning credits rests with YCCC.
