Portfolio Review

Students must present evidence of college level learning that meets the requirements of the course(s) for which they are seeking credit.  This evidence may include, but is not limited to:

  • Testimony regarding confidence
  • Learning products (essays, work samples, learning logs)
  • Performance or examinations, oral or written
  • Demonstrations or simulations

Evidence of learning may be authenticated by the CPL faculty evaluator.

Students must present a complete portfolio for each course for which they are seeking credit. 

Faculty portfolio evaluators may request additional information prior to making a decision on the awarding of credit.  If a student is not awarded credit after a first review of the portfolio, he/she may submit the portfolio for a second review based on the feedback of the assessor.  There will be a fee for the second review.  A portfolio submitted for a second time will be reviewed by the initial faculty assessor.  A portfolio will be reviewed a maximum of two times. 

Students wishing to appeal the outcome of a portfolio review will follow the standard academic appeal process.  The appropriate Academic Dean may initiate a review by a second party assessor if deemed appropriate.
