Credit for Prior Learning (CFPL)

Credit for Prior Learning allows students to earn credit for courses in subjects in which they have prior skills and knowledge, while only paying a fraction of the cost of tuition, saving time and money. Exams are offered on a variety of subjects for many of the classes offered at Gateway Technical College. Students who are interested must first contact the Registrar's Office ( or 262-564-2617) for approval before testing. For more information about the requirements for Credit for Prior Learning, and a list of which courses offer an exam, please visit Credit for Prior Learning (CFPL): Prior Learning Assessment

Once you have received your approval to test, you will be able to register for a test appointment. During sign up, you will be asked to provide the course number of the test you wish to take. Should you pass, you are required to pay the credit for prior learning fees in order to receive credit for the course. 

On the day of the test, make sure to bring your signed Credit for Prior Learning registration form.
