Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)
Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) offers students the opportunity to acquire college credit for the skills and knowledge gained through previous learning experiences. PLAR is based on the assessment of non-traditional learning experiences, such as previous work experience, internships, volunteer work, workshops, conferences, self-taught training, political involvement as well as sporting, cultural, and social activities, travel experiences, etc.
Please see the collegiate calendar for PLAR deadlines. Click here to see fees associated with a PLAR request*.
