This policy sets out the Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) that is recognized by
Acacia University (AU) and for which a student may apply for recognition in his/her
application for a program offered by the University at a master’s degree level.
Recognition is normally in the form of credits that are awarded against a course(s)
and means that a student is exempted from the study of that course(s).
Such an exemption is referred to as Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL). APL exemptions will be awarded in recognition of a verified achievement of designated learning outcomes at a specified level.
It is the achievement of that learning, or the outcomes of it, and not just the experience of the activities alone, that will be
eligible for the exemptions based on APL policy.
