19 Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)

Students may ask you about Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition at KPU. The University recognizes that students may attain significant learning at a post-secondary level through work, training, and informal experiences outside the formal post-secondary system. KPU will grant credit toward a certificate, diploma, or degree for this learning through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA), if it fulfills the requirements of the program in which the student is enrolled.

To learn more about how students can apply for prior learning credit and obtain information on the PLAR process including a list of designated PLAR assessors in your Faculty/Department, please visit the Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition webpage. You can also view PLAR Frequently Asked Questions for further information including compensation for prior learning assessment work.
