Our Credit for Prior and Alternative Learning (CPAL) program is a pathway to earn S-graded transfer credit for learning that is not already documented as a credited and graded course on a U.S. regionally accredited college/university transcript.
Students may earn up to 12 CPAL credits via successful completion of a portfolio evaluated by a St. Catherine University faculty member.
