What is PLAR?
PLAR (Prior Learning Assessment Recognition) is a process to receive academic credit gained through a variety of learning experiences. Through PLAR you can earn academic credit for what you already know.
Benefits of PLAR:
- Save money; earn up to 18 classes worth of credits for less than the price of 4 classes.
This may reduce the cost of your program.
- Save time; can reduce the time needed to complete your program.
- Strategize learning; identify your acquired knowledge skills and knowledge gaps to strategize future learning objectives. This decreases learning duplication.
