Germanna is committed to recognizing a student’s prior college-level learning and experience. Credit for Prior Learning can be applied to a student’s program of study, potentially saving time and money.

Credit for prior learning is only applicable towards curriculum requirements at Germanna and does not fulfill the College’s residency requirement.

If a student plans to transfer, it is critical that they work with their faculty advisor and/or counselor to ensure they comply with the transfer policies at the destination school. Credit for prior learning may be obtained through a variety of means including transfer credit, certain exams, credentials, or previous work experience.
