3 - 3 - Introduction Lakeshore Technical College (LTC) recognizes its responsibility to provide advanced placement status to those students with valid and credible learning experiences that have occurred outside of our college classrooms. Credit for prior learning, sometimes called advanced standing, may be granted for the following situations: 1. Postsecondary credits earned at WTCS colleges; 2. Postsecondary credits earned at non-wtcs colleges; 3. High school credits for which students later seek college credit; 4. Credits earned by completing a WTCS program of apprentice-related technical instruction; 5. Subject area competency demonstrated by passing a district or national examination; or 6. Previous work experience, education or training, or other prior learning demonstrated as comparable in content and rigor to a specific technical college course(s). LTC is as committed to the process of granting credit for prior learning as we are to ensuring that the knowledge, competence, and skills required of the course exist. As we evaluate prior learning experiences, our goal is to transition each learner to the workplace and/or next educational level with the base knowledge and skills required to succeed.
4 - 4 - General Guidelines Credit for prior learning must be applied toward a specific program at LTC. o Nonprogram students are not eligible for advanced standing. o Students need to be aware that credits awarded through prior learning at LTC may not be accepted in transfer by other postsecondary institutions. At least 25% of the technical/occupational-specific courses required for the degree, certificate, or diploma requirements will be completed at LTC. Experiential Learning Exception: LTC may authorize an exemption of the 25% technical/occupational course requirements if the exception benefits the student. Experiential learning exceptions include: o Apprentice-related technical instruction o Individualized Technical Studies o Signed transfer agreements with degree and non-degree granting institutions. Transfer credit may be awarded for up to 75% of the degree, diploma, or certificate requirements. Credit-by-portfolio may be awarded for up to 25% of the total program credits. LTC reserves the right to place time limits on prior learning for which credit may be granted. Individual programs may have time limits for accepting credit for courses or experiential learning based on technological changes specific to that field. Students are responsible for providing LTC with appropriate official documentation of prior learning experiences. In the case of foreign transcripts, the student assumes the responsibility of having transcripts evaluated by an approved evaluation agency. Students are encouraged to have their foreign transcripts evaluated course-by-course rather than by degree. A listing of agencies that are approved to evaluate foreign transcripts is found on page 6. The student s LTC transcript will specify which credits have been earned through LTC course completion and which have been awarded through credit for prior learning. Grades earned from other institutions will not be included in the LTC grade point average. For students in shared programs, the students are subject to the same grade and grade point average requirements for class progression. All program classes taken at the shared program college carry grades and are computed in the program grade point average A minimum grade of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent course GPA on a modified scale; i.e., 2.5 on a 5.0 scale) is required for each class that is being considered for credit for prior learning awards.
5 - 5 - Official transcripts are required from the institution awarding the credit.
6 - 6 - Advanced Standing Through Earned College Credits (Transfer Credits) Students who have a postsecondary or professional degree from a nationally or regionally accredited institution of higher education will receive credits towards fulfilling WTCS associate degree general education core requirements. Colleges shall evaluate these credits according to the Gen Ed College Course Transfer Guide ( to determine the extent to which the credits apply. Students who qualify for general education credits may need to complete some additional general education core requirements based on documented program-specific general education requirements; for example, science courses for health programs. International credits may qualify for credit for prior learning if the international credits are deemed comparable to WTCS credits offered by LTC. 1. Wisconsin Technical College System Courses and Credits a. WTCS credits will be accepted according to WTCS guidelines and/or program requirements. b. The counselor/advisor will review the transcript(s). c. The student will review the approved advanced standing on his/her transfer credit transcript d. The student will not pay any credit recording fees. 2. Other College Course Transfers a. Incoming program and/or general education courses not automatically transferred in will be submitted by the counselor/advisor for instructor and/or dean approval. b. The counselor/advisor may ask the student for further information on the course such as the course description, course level, textbook, syllabus, assessments, or other information that will help the LTC instructor determine that 80% of the course competencies have been achieved c. The student will review the approved advanced standing on his/her transfer credit transcript d. The student will not pay any credit recording fees. 3. Transfer Information System The WTCS and the University of Wisconsin System provide all students with a single source to consult about what courses will transfer to technical colleges and the university system. The Transfer Information System (TIS) provides students with on-line access to information about the transfer of credit within and between the two postsecondary systems. LTC will honor courses listed in the TIS as equivalent in content to an LTC course. For example, TIS information affirms that Fox Valley Technical College accepts English courses from UW-Platteville as equivalent to Written Communication; LTC will honor the credit evaluation and accept the transfer course as equivalent to Written Communication at LTC.
7 - 7 - Additional Conditions for the Acceptance of Transfer Credits The student will need to: Have achieved a GPA of 2.0 or higher ( or equivalent course GPA on a modified scale) for which transfer credit is requested. Courses with P grades will be awarded transfer credit only if the transcript indicates that credit hours were awarded and that the P grade is equivalent to 2.0 or higher (or equivalent course GPA on a modified scale). Only credit hours will be transferred to LTC, not grades or grade point average. Courses for which transfer credit is awarded must demonstrate that 80% of the course competencies have been met. Courses completed at a non-accredited institution will be evaluated on a course-by-course basis to determine equivalency to LTC course competencies and performance standards. In some cases, students may be required to complete credit-by-examination or other evaluation measures in order to establish equivalency. Transcripts from non-u.s. institutions must be evaluated by an approved evaluation agency. The official transcript evaluation must be sent directly from the agency to LTC. Students are encouraged to have their foreign transcripts evaluated course by course rather than by degree. The following are approved agencies for the evaluation of transcripts from non-u.s. institutions: Center for Applied Research, Evaluation, and Education, Inc.

8 - 8 - Credits Through High School Articulation Agreements 1. LTC-WTCS Secondary School (Signed) Articulation Agreements Articulation agreements between LTC and secondary school systems within the LTC district provide a seamless academic pathway from high school into LTC certificates, technical diplomas, and associate degree programs. When a student takes an articulated course, he/she is taking a high school course that results in the same learning outcomes as a similar or identical LTC course. Other WTCS colleges shall accept technical college credit awarded through a high school articulation agreement by one WTCS college for similar courses or those courses adopted as part of a systemwide curricula. On the LTC website, current articulation agreements may be found under Future Students/High School Students. a. During the program advising session the counselor/advisor will review the high school articulation agreement and high school transcript for all courses (regardless of program) the student has successfully completed or is currently enrolled that qualify as articulated or advanced standing courses. b. The counselor/advisor will approve or deny the advanced standing request: Student must receive a 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent course GPA on a modified scale). In the event two semester or two quarter grades equal a final grade for an articulated course, each course must equal 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent course GPA on a modified scale). Credit awarded by articulation is based upon the articulation agreement that was in effect at the time that the student completed the high school course(s). Advanced standing is granted when the student applies for and is admitted to the technical college within 27 months from high school graduation and NOT at the time the student takes the course. c. The student will review the approved advanced standing on his/her transfer credit transcript d. The student will not pay any credit recording fees. 2. LTC- Secondary School Requests When No Signed Agreement Exists If a student wishes a high school-level course to be considered as credit for prior learning, the request is reviewed with the program counselor/advisor. Two options with unique processes are available: OPTION 1 High School has no agreement with LTC: a. The counselor/advisor will refer the request to a high school career coach. Note: Plan on a 30-day activity.
9 - 9 - b. The high school articulation process will be followed (see LTC website, Future Students/ High School Student/ College Credit for High School Students/ Guidelines for Advanced Standing.) c. The high school career coach will work with the division dean and instructor to determine if 80% of the competencies have been achieved. The high school career coach may ask the student to provide a course description, course level, textbook, syllabus, assessments, or other information. Student must receive a 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent course GPA on a modified scale). In the event two semester or two quarter grades equal a final grade for an articulated course, each course must equal 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale (or equivalent course GPA on a modified scale). Credit awarded by articulation is based upon the articulation agreement that was in effect at the time that the student completed the high school course(s). Advanced standing is granted when the student applies for and is admitted to the technical college within 27 months from high school graduation and NOT at the time the student takes the course. d. The student will review the approved advanced standing on his/her transfer credit transcript e. The student will not pay any credit recording fees. OPTION 2 For students who were part of a recognized Department of Workforce Development Youth Apprenticeship program a.

The student will be awarded a maximum of 39 credits towards the Technical Studies Journeyworker associate degree for registered apprenticeship-related instruction. e. The student will review the approved advanced standing on his/her transfer credit transcript f. The student will not pay any credit recording fees. 4. Advanced Sequential Course Concept At times credit for prior learning may be granted for courses if they are part of a sequence or continuum of courses in a specific discipline. An example of such approval is when advanced placement is awarded for a remedial course when an intermediate course is passed with a grade of 2.0 or higher (or equivalent course GPA on a modified scale). a. The student and counselor/advisor will discuss the request for advanced sequential course approval. b. The counselor/advisor will work with the division dean and instructor to determine if 80% of the competencies have been achieved.

14 Experiential Learning At times credit for prior learning may be granted for work experience or certifications through non-accredited organizations such as workshops, seminars, training designed for learners to develop specific technical skills or knowledge. Approval of credits is highly individualized and will involve LTC deans and instructor who work directly with the student. The student, under the guidance of the dean and instructor, will prepare a demonstration of the prior learning with one or more of the following methods of assessment: (See Attachment C.) Written Essay Presentation or Speech Document Assessment (based on document products the learner has created through work) Simulation or Demonstration Interview (answers given to a defined set of questions) Witness Testimony (learner assessed based on oral/written reports of those who have knowledge of prior achievements) Standardized or Challenge Exams Journals Role Play/Case Study Evaluations of non-collegiate learning (third party training programs offered by the military or corporations). a.

The counselor/advisor will discuss the opportunity with the program dean and/or instructor. c. An individualized approach will be designed. d. A variety of fees may apply and will be reviewed with the student by the dean, instructor, and/or counselor/advisor. A testing fee in alignment with Testing Services A credit recording fee of college credit to appear on transcript e. The counselor/advisor will inform the student of the decision. f. The student will pay a credit recording fee. Reasons Why Credit for Prior Learning May Not Be Awarded 1. At least 80% of the course competencies have not been demonstrated or the college believes it is in the student s best interest for the future career and/or educational process to take the course. 2. The documentation provided to LTC for evaluation did not provide the detail needed to ensure student knowledge and/or skill. Please keep in mind that we will need to certify the student s college-level education and/or skill. 3. The course that the student completed or work experience that the student has may not reflect the current industry standard.
15 Appeal Process Should students not agree with decisions made regarding their requests for credit for prior learning, the grievance process includes: 1. The student will request a review of the decision to the program counselor/advisor. 2. A committee will convene and be composed of the instructional designer, division dean, program counselor/advisor, instructor, Registrar. 3. The request will be reviewed. The decision and rationale will be presented to the student. 4. The student may make a final appeal in writing to the Vice President of Instruction if the student disagrees with the decision of the appeal committee.
