Prior Learning Assessment

Students may apply for Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) credit as substitution for academic course requirements.


If students are uncertain about how past experience may relate to their course of study, an appointment with a program advisor is recommended.


Students will be assessed a minimum fee for evaluation of a portfolio or certification/credential. This fee is charged regardless of credit status after evaluation. Additional cost will be incurred when evaluating a portfolio for more than one course. Please refer to the on-line published fee schedule.


Applications for Portfolio Review Evaluation and Certification and Credentialed Experience are attached here, along with the PLA Rubric for Portfolio Based Credit as a guide.
