Our HESEAP® Review Committee carefully evaluates each student’s detailed and documented previous education (including formal education, heutagogy, on-the-job training, CEC, etc.), previous or current experience (work, military, and volunteer), awards, etc. Eligible students will be awarded transfer or classroom learning credits (CLC).
You can pre-study and complete your exams 24/7 from anywhere and anytime that suits you. If you are out of work, quarantined, or even on a beach, all you need is your laptop or any other digital device.
Our HESEAP® Credit Evaluation Program is the only program of its kind.
It allows students to have their academic education and experience verified and certified.
Qualified students can drastically reduce the cost and time required to complete their college degree program.
What is HESEAP®?
HESEAP is an acronym for “Higher Education Skills Equivalency Accreditation Program.” The HESEAP system is based upon the internationally recognized Philippine ETEEAP educational assessment program in which a student’s documented and verified previous education and experience is carefully evaluated and credited toward college courses where applicable.
How are CLC “Classroom Learning Credits” determined?
Through an extensive application and verification process, the HESEAP Academic Review Committee carefully evaluates the candidate’s prior knowledge, skills, education, experience, awards, and achievements relevant to a particular course or field under USILACS’s academic programs. Applicants provide highly detailed and documented evidence of prior education, experience, awards, and other activities. Transcripts, course catalogs, and syllabuses are used to evaluate prior education. The Committee compares all this information against what an average student would be expected to learn in a college course or courses on the subject. Applicants need to supply sufficient details and documentation to allow the Committee to accurately evaluate the applicant’s knowledge and experience level when compared to a college course or courses on the subject. Transfer credits for courses completed at other colleges or universities are also evaluated and awarded using the HESEAP program.
For those qualified students, CLC credits are awarded for equivalent classroom, laboratory, or workshops.
How is HESEAP different?
This unique program uses equivalent competency standards, a comprehensive assessment system, and combined assessment methodologies to assess the student’s previous college-level education and experience. Based upon this assessment, qualified students are awarded CLC credits”. The CLC credit reduces the in-classroom time required for graduation.
What HESEAP is and What HESEAP is Not
HESEAP should never be confused with traditional or online education. That is NOT what HESEAP is. The HESEAP program is NOT a degree program. HESEAP is NOT an educational program. HESEAP is NOT designed to educate. HESEAP IS a “credit for prior education and experience program.”
Students who do NOT have the adequate prior education and experience required to be awarded CLC or that cannot pass the final exam in a course do NOT qualify for HESEAP. Students not qualifying for HESEAP CLC must enroll in standard college courses.
How does it work?
All USILACS students must take comprehensive final exams for each course for which they received a CLC award. All courses for which a student is not awarded a CLC must be completed traditionally.
