Prior Learning credits represent a substantial savings in time and money, as the credits you earn are at a rate well below current tuition costs for coursework, and you pay​ for only for the number of credits you actually use toward your degree. Prior Learning credits can also reduce the time involved in earning your degree; the more Prior Learning credits you earn, the fewer courses you need to take to complete your degree.
