Life Experience Credit

Life Experience Credit is credit given in recognition of knowledge obtained in ways other than study in a two- or four-year accredited college. The knowledge must be equivalent to what would be learned in an LIU Post undergraduate course as determined by a review by individual academic departments. No Life Experience Credit can be awarded for Accounting or Criminal Justice courses. Matriculated LIU Post students in good academic standing may apply for Life Experience Credit as early as the first semester. However, credits earned by this method will not be posted before completing six credits at LIU Post. All applications must first be submitted to the Director of the Office for Non-Traditional Student Programs. For application forms and additional information about rules and procedures, contact the Office for Non-Traditional Student Programs at 516-299-2040 or e-mail
