Activity 4. Accelerate progression through STEM programs

Credit for Prior Learning (CPL)

Enrolled Middlesex students may be eligible for Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) based on learning that they have gained through academically related employment, training programs, military service, or other relevant life experience. MCC’s Experiential Learning Coordinator is working with STEM faculty to develop and/or revise options for students to receive credit for prior learning. For more information, consult the MCC Credit for Prior Learning Webpage.

A special marketing campaign, aimed at raising awareness of CPL opportunities, is underway and includes presentations to Career Center customers in collaboration with the Navigator, as well as print materials available through the Admissions Office.

Accelerated opportunities for students to complete math courses include revision of Preparation for College Math with Calculus and Non-Calculus options and an Accelerated Pre-Calculus and Trigonometry course for Engineering students. Math faculty are now reviewing student results in these courses that have been piloted and considering additional options for the acceleration of math courses.
