The bill requires the council created and existing pursuant to
section 23-1-108.5 (council) to implement a plan for determining and
awarding academic credit for postsecondary education based on past and
present work-related experience.
As a part of the plan, the council must also determine how
academic credit for postsecondary education will transfer to the extent

possible from career and technical education programs and technical
certificate programs to state public 2-year and 4-year institutions of
higher education.
The council must consult with representatives from state
institutions of higher education, representatives of the Colorado work
force development council, and representatives from growing industries
in implementing the plan.
The bill requires state institutions of higher education to develop
plans to evaluate whether postsecondary education was acquired by work
experience and to accept and transfer academic credit awarded for
work-related experience as courses with guaranteed-transfer designation
or as a part of a statewide articulation agreement.
The bill supplements Colorado's student bill of rights to include a
provision declaring that the council shall implement a plan to award
academic credit for past and present work-related experience.
