Credit for Life Experience:
We recognize that many of us have had educational experiences through employment opportunities and other venues. Credit for life experience is one way to add additional value to these experiences through gaining college credit for them.

We encourage our transfer students to carefully read this policy. Important to note about this policy, should a student transfer to Clarion without meeting the QPA requirements to come into the College of Business Administration, they will be welcomed into the College of Business Administration upon earning the required QPA through their Clarion University course work.
