Frequently Asked Questions

What is the fee for Prior Learning Assessment?

  • Marist only charges a fee for the review of Life Work or a Portfolio.  This fee is less than the cost of one Marist undergraduate credit.  View the pricing details on this page.  

Can I use financial aid to pay for it?

  • Yes. You can use surplus financial aid to cover the costs.  Please note that  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 to other institutions.
