Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a fee for evaluations of prior learning?

  • Yes, there is a standard fee for assessment and the cost is less than tuition for 1 credit.

Can I use financial aid to pay for it?

  • Yes. You can use surplus financial aid to cover the costs; however FAFSA does not factor in prior learning credits as part of a student's full- or part-time status.  Only surplus funds can be used to pay for these credits.

Are these credits transferrable?

  • No. They appear on your Marist transcript the same way transfer credits do.  However, these credits cannot transfer outside of Marist.
