The Maxine Goodman Levin College of Urban Affairs conducts an Assessment and Accreditation of Prior Learning Experience (AAPLE) Program which recognizes that learning takes place in settings other than the classroom and is designed to award academic credit for substantial previous learning experiences.The AAPLE Program:
In preparation for receiving this credit, students enroll in a two-credit hour course: UST 190 (Analysis of Experiential Learning in Urban Studies.) The course is offered both fall and spring semesters and provides the understanding necessary to identify relevant prior learning and present evidence of competence in those areas. UST 190 also familiarizes students with the various majors in the college and assists in planning a Bachelor's degree program.
