    For working adults seeking credit for career experience toward their degree (5+ years of experience)

    Prior Learning Option

    Based on the philosophy that adult learners acquire university level-learning through career experiences, this option provides the opportunity to turn experiential learning into college credits (45 maximum available elective credits). Students enroll in ITDS 300 Portfolio Development (generally offered Fall quarter) and are instructed/mentored through the development of their portfolios and upon completion, the document is submitted to an academic department for assessment (current fee is $675 per portfolio).

    The Prior Learning option also provides the adult learner the ability to self-select their courses from the Social and Behavioral Science curriculum, thus tailoring the program for their career objectives.

    How to Enroll:

    Schedule a meeting with EWU at Bellevue advisors by calling (425) 564-5100 or  emailing EWUBC staff will guide the student through the University admissions process and academic requirements.
