A portfolio is another way for a student to demonstrate learning acquired outside of the traditional classroom. It is a collection of information gathered by the student and presented in a systematic format that validates the experiential learning that has occurred. Students may only present a portfolio to demonstrate their knowledge and mastery of the state-approved content and competencies for a GT Pathways category. These categories are similar to the College of Arts and Sciences General Education categories and the general education categories in the other CU Boulder colleges and schools.
Please note that students may also earn GT Pathways credit for prior learning via:
- Advanced Placement (AP) exams
- International Baccalaureate (IB) exams
- College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams
- DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST)
Please see the Office of Admissions' Credit for Coursework or Exams page for information about earning credit for those exams.
For more information, see our Credit for Prior Learning webpage.
