Please contact your academic advisor to confirm that you can apply experiential essay credits to your degree.

How many credits can I receive?

Essays are awarded credit on a pass/fail basis. The number of eligible credits is determined by the length of the essay. Credit is granted if the essay thoroughly covers the topic and subtopics (two, four, or six subtopics). If your experiential learning essay is denied credit, you are allowed only one attempt to rewrite the essay using suggestions from our faculty evaluators.
