There are several components required in a portfolio (resume, detailed job description, work samples, licenses, transcripts, letters from supervisors, etc.), which are outlined in the Prior Learning Guide. Portfolios should demonstrate how you have the knowledge in a particular course, and will be reviewed by department faculty for an award decision. The fee is $185 per credit for a portfolio review.
There are no proficiency exams for engineering courses, so you may consider creating portfolios for the courses for which you seek credit.
Please note that NYIT usually follows American Council of Education recommendations for credit based on military courses (SMART transcript), but awards only elective credit for this training.
