Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) allows students to receive academic credit for learning acquired through qualifying life experiences when they meet the goals of a particular Cal U course. Qualifying experiences may include:
- Work or military training.
- Personal educational growth.
- Volunteer work.
- Independent certifications and/or credentials.
Credit is awarded when a student is able to demonstrate transferable learning or knowledge that can be applied to new or different situations. Contact the Office of Academic Success at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information and forms.
