Recognition of Prior Learning
Prior Learning Assessment is a process for granting credit in a post-secondary program based upon what you know and what you can do, no matter where or how you gained your knowledge and skills.
To apply for credit transfer or prior learning assessment, please refer to the following documents:
Note that the maximum amount of credit that can be awarded through RPL is 50% of our certificate hours, regardless of specialization. Therefore, maximum RPL credit hours that may be applied for are as follows:
- Associate Certificate in Leadership & Conflict Resolution; 77 program credit hours, so a maximum of 38.5 non-JIBC credit hours
- Certificate in Applied Leadership; 140 program credit hours, so a maximum of 70 non-JIBC credit hours
Credit equivalency is recognition of equivalent education earned at another post-secondary institution or learning organization.
Transfer credits (articulation agreements) occur when another post-secondary institution recognizes JIBC credits to their courses or programs.
