Credit For Previous Training Or Experience


Students may be granted college credit for previous training in their technical program area if approved by the instructor in their program area, the Dean of Technical Studies & Workforce Development, and the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Validated non-traditional education experiences (i.e., work experience, industry training) may be recognized by Southeast Arkansas College if a student enrolls in Portfolio Development and Experience Evaluation (TECH 2011 ). Military training experience is evaluated for equivalent college credit through the use of a nationally standardized system. Credit is awarded for technical courses only and can be used to fulfill requirements toward an Associate of Applied Science degree, Technical Certificate or Certificate of Proficiency. The SEARK College transcript will record an “S” for credit earned in this manner and is NOT considered transferable. Up to 15 credit hours may be awarded if the portfolio meets the same level of learning that would have occurred had the student taken the same courses at Southeast Arkansas College. Credit is awarded upon approval of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Credit will be applied to the student’s transcript once they have earned fifteen semester credit hours through traditional classes.
