Consulting to Address Specific Challenges

Consulting for Colleges and Universities

As a college or university administrator, you may think about:
  • Goals for Your Adult Student Population
  • Marketing to and Recruiting Adult Students
  • Retaining and Graduating More Adult Students
CAEL keeps all of this in mind and creates a customized solution that supports your goals and helps your adult students succeed.
Consulting for Employers As an employer, you have your own unique concerns:
  • Identifying workforce competency and skill gaps that impact your bottom line
  • Finding efficient ways to use training and tuition dollars to develop vital competencies
  • Moving front-line employees into new and different roles
  • Facing an employee retirement bubble that may leave you scrambling to fill mission-critical positions
CAEL’s customized consulting solutions focus on your unique concerns and bring an in-depth understanding of how to help adults learn and excel in their work.
Consulting for Workforce Developers As a workforce developer, you may be concerned about:
  • Identifying what new skills your target industries need
  • Recognizing knowledge and skill gaps that training and education can fill to help job seekers link to careers with long-term stability
  • Leveraging your talent development system to spur economic growth
  • Improving your connections with employers to help satisfy their workforce needs
  • Uncovering hidden job seeker skills that may set them on the path to employment
CAEL crafts customized consulting solutions based on full knowledge of how employers and higher education systems influence the success of adults seeking further education.

The requirements for most associate's and bachelor’s degree programs include general or free electives which can be satisfied by taking courses you choose. Credit hours generated by courses listed in the CTL will satisfy these requirements, up to the credit hour limit set for the particular degree program. For example, a student enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program requiring nine semester hours of electives may select any three, three-credit courses listed in the CTL, from any public campus, to meet this requirement.
Most CTL courses will also count for specific course requirements in degree programs. For example, assume a student is enrolled in a bachelor’s degree program requiring an American History I course. That student can take any course listed in the CTL under American History I, from any public campus, and have that course apply toward meeting the student’s degree requirements, in the same way as the equivalent American History I course on that student’s home campus. Likewise, students planning to transfer can be assured that the American History I course they’ve taken at their current campus will apply in the same way as the American History I course at their new campus.
Ivy Tech Community College of Indiana and Vincennes University are only listed once under each course category in the CTL, since all Ivy Tech and VU courses will count in exactly the same way, irrespective of the campus at which the course was taken.
The transferability guarantee of the CTL applies to all courses offered after the effective date of the most current version of the CTL, July 1, 2007. In many cases, this guarantee also applies to courses offered prior to that date. Students, who have taken courses prior to the effective date, should consult an academic advisor. The Transfer Indiana web site (www.transferin.net) will provide additional information about transferability of this coursework.
Qualified high school students are eligible to take courses that will count toward meeting both high school diploma and college degree requirements. High school students, who wish to satisfy the Core 40 with Academic Honors Diploma requirement calling for dual high school/college courses resulting in six transferable college credits, are encouraged to choose dual credit courses from either the Core Transfer Library (CTL) or from the courses identified by the Independent Colleges of Indiana (ICI). Courses from both the CTL and ICI maximize transferability of credit for courses and also meet the dual credit requirements necessary for Core 40 with Academic Honors or Technical Honors. If students choose a dual credit course NOT on the CTL or courses identified by ICI, they should directly contact the college they plan to attend to see how that course can be used at that institution.  The CTL transferability guarantee also applies to dual credit courses, thus offering students maximum transfer options.
Indiana’s public colleges and universities developed the CTL in response to legislation passed in 2005. It will be updated on a continual basis.

Research & Innovation

Barriers to learning prevent many adults from seeking the training or earning the degrees they want. These barriers can be financial, informational, or technological. Breaking them down requires constant learning, exploration, and development.

The Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) conducts research and creates innovative solutions to achieve the following goals:

Credit Consolidation is a unique non-degree-seeking credential service available to students not currently engaged in Rowan University matriculated, degree granted programs. College level, accredited coursework reflecting enrollment, training, or knowledge evaluated by Rowan University, for such academic assessment tools as Credit by Examination, or credit recommendations approved by the American Council on Education, including recommendations for certificates, is acknowledged and recorded upon the official, non-degree-seeking level (consolidation) transcript; it is available in hardcopy - we do not offer a softcopy option.
Credits placed upon the consolidation transcript are permanent and are not removed. This credential allows the uniform recording of academic achievements from various universally recognized sources upon one official transcript. Foreign credentials, CEU credit, or courses you have actually taught are not eligible for transcription.
Fees associated with this service cover transcription of initial-application credits, and additional earned or evaluated credit, for one year. Requests for further credit transcription beyond one year are subject to an additional fee. Fees are non-refundable. Accordingly, it is appropriate to verify consolidation transcription adheres to receiving institution(s) requirements.
