Prior Learning Assessment 

Adult students often possess a wide range of personal and professional experiences when they enroll in college. Many of these experiences may contain learning that's comparable to what you might learn in a college course. Our Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) process is designed to help you determine if you have additional credit that can be awarded to you for what you've already accomplished!

Check out the PLA Guide Here!

Prior Learning Assessment can include any of the following:

1) Evaluation of professional licenses or certifications (i.e., EMT license, insurance license, nursing assistant certification and Six Sigma certifications).
2) Professional training programs you've completed through an employer
3) Military training
4) Take a CLEP test and test out of a college class
5) Essays you write to describe the learning you acquired through various life experiences such as: project management, operating a small business, grant writing, volunteering, raising children and caring for aging parents.

You can earn up to 22 credits through the PLA process. Many people find PLA a less expensive and faster way to earn college credit rather than taking additional courses. At the beginning of every group, students have the option of attending a PLA workshop to learn the details.
