About College Credit for Work or Life Experience
College Credit FastTrack helps current and prospective students gain credit for prior learning experience. CCAC students and applicants can create and submit an e-portfolio, which enables you to document and compile your prior learning for evaluation of credit. College Credit FastTrack helps you find the right course to petition for credit, puts you in contact with an advisor at CCAC, and assists you with building your e-portfolio and sending it to an assessor for review.
Credit can be awarded for learning acquired as a result of:
- Training programs
- Military service
- Independent study
- Community service
- Completing free online courses
Learn more about the process of developing your e-portfolio, which will serve to document the evidence that you have mastered the learning outcomes for a credit course at CCAC through life and work experience.

Before You Submit Your Portfolio
You should be aware that CCAC will award college credit for current or former CCAC students, or prospective students who plan to attend CCAC within the next two years. If a portfolio is approved for college credit, it will be entered into our student information system as pending, and will be posted to the CCAC transcript once you have completed your first course at CCAC Degree or Certificate.
Please note that the cost of submitting a portfolio is $150.00 per course. You will be paying this non-refundable fee AFTER you decide to move forward with this process and BEFORE you actually submit the portfolio online.
Once you have submitted your portfolio, the evaluation process may take up to two months to complete. When the portfolio is assessed by CCAC faculty, the decision of the faculty is final.
