New CPL Operating Instructions 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 on internal and external assessments are available on the Minnesota State Board of Trustees Policy and Procedure page.
These operating instructions will help increase consistency and transparency of Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) codes, facilitate easier transfer for students with external CPL, and improve data collection of CPL impacts on persistence and completion.
