Credit for Courses from Alternative Providers

Wilmington University recognizes courses completed through select alternative providers to help make higher education affordable and attainable.

Undergraduate General Education Alternative Providers

We have partnered with several providers to deliver alternatives for earning credit from prior learning. These organizations offer courses that meet some general education requirements at Wilmington University, in a flexible, self-paced format. Partner courses are ACE Credit-recommended and have been evaluated by Wilmington University faculty for transfer acceptance. Prior to registering, consult a prior learning specialist at to ensure courses are degree applicable.

*Wilmington University allows up to 75 undergraduate PLA credits to apply toward a bachelor degree program. As part of the 75 credit PLA limit, no more than 45 credits may be applied toward a bachelor degree from an ACE/NCCRS Alternative Credit Provider (e.g. Sophia Learning, Straighterline, or Saylor).

**Please note that due to Delaware requirements for teacher licensure eligibility, credits earned through an alternative credit provider will not apply to any College of Education course or degree program that contributes to eligibility for licensure/certification as a Delaware educator.


Can I transfer my credit for prior learning (CPL) to another college or university?

Students who have received credit at Wilmington University through CPL should be aware that prior learning credit may not be accepted by other institutions. Students are encouraged to check with the receiving institution prior to transfer.
