CPL Policy for Graduating Students
This policy is for students who plan to complete Credit for Prior Learning (CPL), which includes Credit for Portfolio Evaluation, Credit for Examination, and/or Credit for Non-Collegiate Learning, during their final term at CUNY School of Professional Studies. Credit for Prior Learning must be selected from the list of approved and evaluated exams/credentials or must be pre-approved by the Experiential Learning Department.
Any Credit for Prior Learning that is to be used to complete a degree requirement must be submitted prior to the Application for Graduation Filing Deadline.
- June Graduation - Filing Deadline is March 1
- August Graduation - Filing Deadline is July 1
- January Graduation - Filing Deadline is November 1
- February Graduation - Filing Deadline is January 15
Submission of completed Credit for Prior Learning means the following:
The CPL Exam or Credential attempted is completed and an official score report, transcript, Credly ACE badge, certificate of completion, and/or passing portfolio proof of completion is submitted and received by email@example.com by the filing deadline.
If a student does not send CPL proof of completion by the Graduation Filing Deadline, it is not guaranteed that the CPL will be applied to the student's record in time for the student to be included in the corresponding graduating class. As a result, this may delay the student's graduation until the next conferral date.
It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the CPL attempted is completed and official proof of completion is submitted and received by firstname.lastname@example.org by the filing deadline.
