Navigating CPL

This page includes various CPL options available at SCSU. Students are encouraged to reach out to the chair of the department in which they are seeking a degree or the CPL coordinator. 

Financial Investment
The cost of pursing CPL will vary depending on the means by which a student seeks an assessment. For example, if undertaking a portfolio review, the student will be required to pay for a one credit course; in other instances, such as taking a CLEP test, the student will pay the fees charged by the external company administering the exam.

If credit for prior learning is granted for a course, a fee of one-third per credit will be assessed. For example, a three-credit course will cost the student the equivalent fee of one credit.
