Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition


Many adults have acquired learning through work experience, self-study, and volunteer work or through professional development. Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) enables the student to demonstrate that they have the necessary knowledge or skills to successfully obtain college credits. The credits may then be applied to a college program.

The PLAR process uses a variety of tools to help learners reflect on, identify, articulate, and demonstrate past learning which has been acquired through student work, and other life experiences and which is not recognized through formal transfer of credit mechanisms.

The PLAR system evaluates prior learning and relates it to existing courses through Portfolio Assessment or Challenge Evaluation for the purpose of granting course matched credits.

Applicants who wish to utilize this program must apply with the AEI at least two months prior to the start of the course(s) or program they are seeking credit.
