Data Communication Summary Form

Summary of Prior Learning - Data Communication

Students must consult with their mentor about the use of this summary form. This information provides the evaluator with an introduction to your learning. In the interview, the evaluator will ask you questions similar to those given in the Guide to Credit for Prior Learning. If necessary, you and the evaluator may agree on further methods of demonstrating your learning, including a written essay, a demonstration or performance, an examination or a sample of your work. Please attach appropriate documentation to this form.

You will be charged for your assessment of prior learning based on the IEF or IPLA fee structures as seen on www.esc.edu/fees. If your first matriculated enrollment was the January 2012 term or later, you may incur additional charges for the submission of Individualized Prior Learning Assessments (IPLAs). If your first matriculated enrollment was prior to January 2012, you must have paid the Individual Evaluation Fee (IEF) before this request can be processed.

Please submit two copies of this form and two copies of any attached documentation to:
CDL Assessment Office, Empire State College, 113 West Avenue, Saratoga Springs, NY 12866.
