Credit for Life Experience

The “Credit for Life Experience” program is a Kentucky State University option which affords an adult student, who has significant learning generated by life experiences, the opportunity to document this learning for possible academic credit. The SOW program faculty does not work with the KSU CLE program. The student handbook reflects the written policy “In accordance with CSWE accreditation standards, the KSU Social Work program does not grant social work course credit for life or work experience.” All inquiries for CLE are directed to the Department Chair who informs students of the CSWE accreditation standards that preclude this as an option.
