Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process of identifying, documenting, assessing, and recognizing what a person knows and can do, related to a specific purpose. At Providence Theological Seminary, this process will allow adults who have learning that is Bachelor of Arts equvalent to enter studies at the graduate level.
RPL is NOT:
Providence Theological Seminary respects all forms of learning and acknowledges that adults learn from a variety of sources and experiences outside the classroom. University-level learning is valuable even when achieved outside the usual academic environment. In this context, Providence Theological Seminary aims to provide an accessible yet fair and rigorous process for assessing the prior learning of mature students seeking admission without a Bachelor of Arts or a GRE Score. Providence recognizes RPL credit on a case-by-case basis if the individual's learning has reached the range and depth of knowledge and skills expected of a student who has completed a Bachelor of Arts (see the BA Learning Outcomes list in the Resources section of this page). By recognizing prior learning, Providence aims to enhance the student's educational goals and assist in her/his academic development. While providing this opportunity, Providence reserves its mandate of ensuring that appropriate academic standards are maintained.
The RPL Process is outlined in detail in the Resource Guide. The following is an over-view of the procedure.
Step 1: Pre-entry / Initial Advising
Step 2: Portfolio Development / Evidence Collection
Step 3: Submission of Portfolio for Assessment
Step 4: Results of Portfolio Assessment
