Transparency of Credit Decision

When a student has applied for credit for prior learning, the student is entitled to the following:

Portfolio Credit

The evaluator of the portfolio (faculty member or subject matter expert) must provide a reasoning for the amount of credit hours awarded or a written explanation provided for the evaluation of the portfolio if credit is denied.

 

Non-Portfolio Credit

If credit is denied for a KCTCS-evaluated course equivalency, an explanation or justification must be made available to the student.

Note: Recommendations and scoring done by ACE, CLEP, AP, and other external bodies are under the auspices of the evaluating body and justifications or explanations of credit denial may not be available.

 

Appeals

If you feel that your prior learning credit was denied in error, you retain the right to appeal through the KCTCS appeals process, outlined in the KCTCS Student Code of Conduct.

Students appealing a portfolio review may submit revised portfolios upon recommendation of the evaluator after receiving recommendations or reasons for credit denial.

Note: Recommendation by ACE, CLEP, AP, and other external bodies are under the auspices of the evaluating body and cannot be appealed through KCTCS.
