PLA Accelerator Benefits

The process is simple: students fill out an online questionnaire that outlines their education, work and life experiences and areas of expertise. When completed, they receive a summary PLA Report that they can email to their advisor to review prior to their session. The result: everyone is on the same page and understands the areas where college credit for prior learning could be granted, making it easier to set goals and get the student on the path to degree completion. This mobile-optimized tool can be branded to your institution and helps:
