Prior Learning Assessment (PLA)

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Students can earn credits through participation in a Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process. PLA is a process by which you can earn university credit for various university-level learning experiences you have had in your professional or personal life. PLA gives students an opportunity to demonstrate the learning that they have gained outside the university classroom through a number of different sources, such as seminars, training sessions, workshops, non-credit courses, and work experiences. To initiate the PLA process, the students can talk to their advisor or Dr. Krista Stonerock, General Education Department Chair.
