Metro 100

Metro 100 - Getting Credit for What You Know is a free, online, one-credit course through Metropolitan State University this summer.

Partner with Metro State to build your own path to a new career, a new job, or a bachelor’s degree in a program that reflects the future you want. What you already know and can do from your life, work, and community-based learning matters, and your college-level learning can be assessed to earn you the credit you deserve.

METRO 100 is online and FREE the second summer-session, July 6–Aug. 17, 2020. Kick-off in a Zoom meeting Wednesday, July 8, 6:30-8 p.m.!

You will learn to describe what you know and can do, and you’ll compare your learning to career competencies and what’s needed for careers that match your background, skills and interests. You’ll learn about options for earning university-level credit toward a major or degree program, including the opportunity at Metropolitan State to:

  • Earn college-level credit at reduced tuition through assessment of your prior experiential or non-credit learning, called Prior Learning Assessment (PLA).
  • Use learning from military training and experience.
  • Study on your own and then take inexpensive standardized tests, for waiver or credit.
  • Earn credit through newly planned student-directed learning such as independent study or internships.
  • Combine some prior learning and some new learning through an accelerated Theory Seminar.

Use your past to empower your future!

APPLY as a visiting student, take Metro 100 for free in July, set your goals, and earn one credit toward your education!
