Experiential Learning Assessment

Students may apply for and be granted college-level credit for knowledge and understanding related to the student’s degree program which was gained from work-site or other experiences. The student must work with their Department Chair who oversees the area in which credit is being sought to initiate the paperwork and to pay the assessment fee. The Department will complete the evaluation form detailing what, if any, credit should be awarded. Upon completion of the form, the student must make the appropriate payment with the Business Office for any credit being granted. Upon payment of appropriate fees and receiving the Experiential Learning Assessment paperwork, the Office of the Registrar will post the credit. There is no GPA associated with awarding this type of credit, and is not subject to the maximum of 30 allowable credits for non-traditional credit. The credit awarded will not be posted to the student’s transcript until the student has earned 12 hours of academic credit at Christian Brothers University.

Credit for Military Service and Schooling

All post-secondary education / training including military will be evaluated, and credit granted appropriately.

ACE Credit

The American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken outside the traditional classroom. Students completing ACE courses and/or training should submit an official ACE transcript to the Office of the Registrar for an evaluation of transfer credit.

  • AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (ACE) WORKFORCE TRAINING: Credit may be granted for completion of workforce training evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE).
  • AMERICAN COUNCIL ON EDUCATION (ACE) ARMED SERVICES/MILITARY: Credit may be granted for military experience evaluated by ACE, which is transcribed onto a Joint Services Transcript (JST) for the Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard, and the Department of Defense.

Registration

During an announced advisement period, a student meets with his/her advisor to plan a schedule of courses for the upcoming semester. Students register themselves via Banner Web. The Business Office will bill the student at the beginning of each term or semester for the courses chosen. Registration is finalized or completed only after making payment or arrangements for payment in the Business Office.

Students must settle their accounts with the Business Office prior to the first day of classes. Students whose accounts are not settled by the deadline will be dropped from their classes, and they will be assessed a $250 late fee upon reregistration for classes. Original schedules will not be maintained, and the reregistration is subject to class availablility.

It is the student who is ultimately responsible for knowing and following the courses and graduation requirements published in the catalog.
