Earn Credit by Portfolio

As a university, Liberty recognizes that adult learners have valuable experiences that they bring to the academic environment of higher education, and that such students should receive college credit for learning that can be demonstrated through experience.

In some cases, credit may be awarded directly for job training, based on a precedent that has been established by our university. In most cases, students will need to petition for credit through the official portfolio process. It is important for students to enroll in GEED 205, Learning Theory and Portfolio Development, for a successful portfolio creation experience. (Before registering for GEED 205, you must complete this brief tutorial.)

Please note: GEED 205 is only offered to Bachelor degree seeking students, and students pursuing the A.A. Interdisciplinary Studies. GEED 205 is not offered to graduate or doctoral students.
