Receiving Credit for Prior Learning

MVNU is proud of the diverse backgrounds in our student population, and your life and work experience is important to us. Because of this, we award prior learning credit (PLC) for non-traditional education. Once you apply to the BBA program, your MVNU recruiter will contact you to discuss our PLC policies and evaluate your education.

  • To receive credit for prior college course work completed, we must receive your official transcripts from each of the institutions you have attended including a high school diploma or GED. An MVNU representative will assist you with this process.
  • Prior learning credit may be accepted for: on-the-job training, seminars, specific government and industry experience, the military, professional schools, and other activities with credible associations and agencies.
  • You may receive credit for successful completion of Dantes or CLEP test scores.
