    LRC100: Documenting Your Experiences for College Credit

    LRC100 is an open, self-paced course for learners who are interested in earning undergraduate credit for learning acquired outside of the classroom. This comprehensive course guides you through the process of creating an experiential learning portfolio to showcase the knowledge you already possess. Because this course is offered in an “open” format, there is no cost for the course and no instructor.   

    While enrolled in this open learning course, you will have a mentor who will provide guidance and feedback on your portfolio development. Upon completion of the course, you can submit your portfolio to our faculty for an official credit evaluation.*

    Credits awarded through LRC100 can be applied to one of Kaplan University’s many undergraduate programs, meaning that you could graduate sooner than you think and save money on your degree.

    Students who have submitted their portfolios earned an average of 33 quarter credit hours. That’s a savings of 3 terms and $12,000 on their undergraduate degrees.
