Experience Plus Portfolio

Earn College Credit by Submitting a Professional Portfolio

Liberty University recognizes that adult learners have valuable experiences that they bring to the academic environment of higher education. For that reason, we believe 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 other cases, students will need to petition for credit through the official portfolio process.

Experience Plus

Please note: If your degree involves any type of licensure and/or other certifications that are received from a state, government entity, or military branch following the conferral of the degree, then you are ineligible for any type of Experience Plus credit.

If you are unsure whether or not this pertains to you, please call (800) 424-9595 or email eplus@liberty.edu. Also, at least 50% of classes in your major must be completed at Liberty University.
