College Credit for Prior Learning Experiences

If you have prior college-level learning experiences — at another college or university, in the military, in the workplace, through self-study, or in high school — your academic adviser can help you identify how alternative credit acquisition can apply toward meeting your degree goals. See the Prior Learning page for a list of possibilities and the College-Level Examination program CLEP page.

Class Experience

Class sizes are small to optimize peer interaction and emphasize student involvement. Learn while enjoying hands-on activities, practical applied projects, and a personalized learning experience. Classes are scheduled conveniently in the evenings or on weekends and are held at the Penn State Williamsport Center at Water Tower Square.
