Charter Oak awards college credit for successful completion of certain non-collegiate training and instructional programs that have been reviewed for credit, such as some offered by business and industry, governmental and nonprofit agencies, professional organizations, and the United States Armed Forces.
My Training Program Has Been Reviewed for Credit
It's a pretty big deal, so chances are good that they told you and/or put it in their literature.
What Credit Was Recommended?
If we conducted the credit review, the credit recommendations are posted online.
How Do I Apply For The Credit?
If you successfully completed a reviewed program during the validity period, or effective dates, for the credit recommendation, then have the training sponsor send a transcript or official report to our Registrar to apply for the credit.
The Credit Review Was Not Conducted By Charter Oak
If someone else conducted the credit review, you may still be able to apply for the credit. Charter Oak may be able to award credit for successful completion of training that has been reviewed for credit by the:
- American Council on Education College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT)
- Consult with your Academic Advisor and have your ACE CREDIT transcript submitted to our Registrar to apply for the credit.
- Consortium for the Assessment of College Equivalence (CACE)
- Charter Oak is one of the founding members of the Consortium for the Assessment of College Equivalence (CACE) and may be able to award credit for training programs reviewed by the other member institutions. If you think your training program was reviewed for credit by another CACE member, then contact the PLA Office for more information. Provide your date of completion and the exact name of the training sponsor and program.
- National College Credit Recommendation Service (National CCRS)
- Consult with your Academic Advisor and have your NCCRS transcript submitted to our Registrar to apply for the credit.
My Training Program Has Not Been Reviewed for Credit
- You may have gained college-level learning that you can use to apply for PLA credit.
- Students cannot request a credit review of a training program; only training sponsors are eligible to apply for a credit review of their non-collegiate training or instructional program.
