Determining Eligibility

To determine if your work experience is eligible for college credit, upload your materials to Franklin University’s Learning Exchange, a free, web-based tool that enables you to collect certificates, military training, advanced placement, proficiency tests and other learning experiences and submit them for evaluation toward college credit. Sample documents can include your:

  • Résumé
  • Original certificates of completion (including nontraditional certificates)
  • Evidence of testing
