Credit for Prior Learning is a way for students to obtain credit for their knowledge, skills, and previous experience. There are several ways for students to receive credit for prior learning at State Technical College of Missouri:
Credit By Examination/Test Out
This is an opportunity for students to receive college credit for college-level knowledge and skills obtained outside of college through faculty designed, course-specific examinations/test outs and if appropriate hands-on-demonstration of knowledge and skills. To schedule a test out, please contact the State Tech Testing Center at email@example.com.
Students who possess a current valid license or industry credential that is equivalent to a course or courses offered at State Technical College of Missouri may be awarded credit for that course or courses. Contact the Registrar for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The college awards educational credits for a course that is part of the students’ military educational experiences or service that meets the standards of the American Council on Education or equivalent standards for awarding academic credit and that is determined to be equivalent to a course offered at State Technical College of Missouri. Students requesting military credit must provide a transcript from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF), the Army/American Council on Education Registry Transcript System (AARTS), the Sailor/Marine American Council on Education Registry Transcript (SMART), or the Joint Services Transcript (JST).
