YOUR LIFE EXPERIENCE
HAS VALUE AT CLU.

Claremont Lincoln University
Credit for Prior Learning

We Value Leadership Enough to Give You Credit for it.

It’s said that life is a great teacher. At CLU, we believe it’s not just what you’ve learned in life, it’s also what you did with that learning. If you’re someOne who acted on your learning and stepped up in volunteer organizations, in the military, or even in your current job, a Master’s Degree could be in your future.

Your Experience Counts

You could be closer to your degree than you think. At Claremont Lincoln University, we value practical learning and will work with you to award credit based on demonstrated learning from work experience, professional development training, completion of certificates, and even volunteer work.

A Flexible or Faster Timeline

CLU offers affordable, flexible programs for our students. These are programs uniquely developed to empower working adults. In whatever discipline you choose, CLU graduate degrees are designed to augment your existing leadership skills and get you using your new degree in a timely manner. A full-time student can receive a degree in as little as 13 months.

Work and Volunteer Experience

Do you have leadership skills you’ve developed and exhibited throughout your career? Have you served on a nonprofit board, or worked to solve social issues through volunteer work? CLU may cover your credits based on your work and volunteer experience. We determine credit coverage from your demonstrated learning, meaning that it isn’t enough to simply have lived an experience - we’ll need to know what you learned and how you applied it.

Military Experience

Education and leadership from your military service can also count towards your degree. CLU generally accepts ACE and NCCRS-recommended graduate credit for documented military, governmental, and other related training.

Professional Credentials, Licenses, Training, and Certifications

Certifications, licenses, apprenticeships, fellowships, research placements, and other advanced professional work completed or sustained within the past 5 years can potentially count for credit at CLU. We review external credentials and organization-specific training programs completed by our students on an individual basis.

We’re Out to Remake Leadership

Claremont Lincoln University is deeply committed to ethical leadership, dynamic organizations, and Socially Conscious Education®. If you believe in social change, if you believe in working for the greater good, if you believe in diversity, equity, and inclusion, you’ll want a CLU degree. Our students are changemakers who step up, take a stand, and initiate change as thoughtful and dynamic leaders.

Practical vs. Theoretical

CLU students learn by doing. They understand policy because they see it in action. They understand the value and power of change because they are on the front lines, creating social change every day. This may sound a lot like you.

Driven By Values

Diversity, equity, and inclusion aren’t just buzzwords at CLU. They are the foundational values that inform every course and every decision we make. We realize that everyone has something to offer. That’s why at CLU, all are welcomed and all are valued. Students don’t just learn from us, we learn from every one of our students as well.
