At UMGC, students bring a wealth of experience to the classroom—from their workplace, their community, volunteer efforts, and more. We value the learning you've acquired over your lifetime, so we offer ways to turn those experiences into credit.
Before you can participate in our prior learning programs, you will need to apply and be accepted to UMGC. Once you are a student at UMGC, you can learn more about signing up. UMGC provides two prior learning programs designed to translate experiential learning (targeted toward UMGC courses) into college credit.
