Prior learning assessment (PLA) is the awarding of college credit for what you already know. After all, not all learning comes from the classroom. Our PLA gives you an opportunity to demonstrate learning that has taken place in your life through your work, military training, volunteer work, national exams, certifications, and elsewhere. The PLA process allows you to earn credit for college-level learning you already possess, decreases the amount of time to earn your degree, and saves you money.
Credits for What You Know
One of the factors that made me decide to finish my degree in Monroe college is because I was able to get prior learning credits. They took into account that I'm already in this profession, and I could get some credits for the work I've done so far. I was able to do a portfolio and prove that I have experience, enough experience for me to get college credits. That saved me a lot of time and also money.
