Capital University Guide to Experiential Learning
Many students enter Capital with meaningful and relevant learning from their careers, non-credit courses, training, extracurricular activities, and personal experiences. Students can acquire academic credit for college-level learning gained through nontraditional means.
Students assemble an extensive and thorough prior learning portfolio describing past learning outcomes and documenting relevant life experiences.
The University Competency Assessment Panel (UCAP) reviews these competency statements and determines whether academic credit can be awarded.
This procedure can be used to fulfill Signature Learning requirements, course, and major course requirements.
A UCAP portfolio must be submitted prior to a student’s last term. Capital University uses Anthology Portfolio as the eportfolio software for UCAP portfolios.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more about the process and to request access to Anthology Portfolio; in the email, identify that you would like to develop a UCAP portfolio.
Learn more about the UCAP portfolio in the Guide to Experiential Learning (PDF).
