Experiential Learning Assessment (ELA)
Experiential Learning Assessment (ELA) is a directed method through which students may earn credit for college-level learning achieved through work, outside activities, and life experiences. Credit granted for non-traditional learning will not apply toward the residency requirement, nor will credits be computed into the Bellevue University grade point average. This learning can be evaluated for credit through testing or Experiential Learning Assessment.
ELA students present their experiences in the form of a written ELA portfolio. Before preparing portfolios for ELA evaluation, students must complete the two credit course, ELA 201 Experiential Learning Assessment Seminar. Students should contact Undergraduate Academic Advising for further information.
For more information, please review the Bellevue University ELA Student Guide .
