Credit for Prior Learning

Prior learning assessments (PLAs) and portfolios are tools used to award college credit for your non-academic experiences and training by demonstrating that what you already know is equivalent to what you would have learned in an equivalent college course. Your prior knowledge and experience may have been acquired through your past work, military or other training, volunteering, and more. PLAs can help shorten the time it takes to complete your degree. Learn more about this option through the overview of the NJ Prior Learning Assessment Network or by inquiring directly with your institution.
