Credit by Demonstrated Competency (CDCs)

A foundational and comprehensive study of Life Learning which recognizes the rich and diversified experiential learning for adult degree completion degrees. Emphasis is on the learning that students have experienced and earned through life vocations. Participation in this course allows the student to reflect on their life learning. Through the Credit by Demonstrated Competency (CDC) credit evaluation, the student will document selected topics, experiences, and skills earned. CDC application is submitted for evaluation for college credit at the Bachelor’s level. Learning is documented by the student. Students submit the necessary documentation work for the credit being earned in the Learning Management System. Professional ministry and other non-skilled learning experiences may require writing reflections and substantive evidence for credit to be received. See Program Director(s) and Academic Advisor(s) for details.
