What’s New

A New Section of Credit for Prior Learning is now available. A Section has been created just for members of the United States Armed Forces.

The idea for a CPL Section for Military was created with the help of current and former members of the United States Armed Forces, members of the Illinois General Assembly, and current UIS students. Meetings were held and ideas were presented that have now been brought together to form the new Section.

Current and former military men and women, those who have seen combat and those who have not, are all open to enroll in the class with instructor permission.

The CPL Section for Military will be very similar in format to the regular CPL portfolio development class, but will also be unique in regards to class materials, discussion questions, and reference items, all of which are focused on military students, their needs, and how to achieve the best outcome for the student taking the class.

Working in cooperation with the Military Veterans Student Organization and Veteran’s Affairs, the Credit for Prior Learning Department at the University of Illinois Springfield is committed to making this class memorable and beneficial to the students enrolled.

Military students will also be allowed to complete additional portfolios, for up to 12 additional credits, within the Department.
