WHY PLA ACCELERATOR

More than one in five working American adults have some college credit but no degree. Many weigh the decision to resume their pursuit of an education without the benefit of knowing their prior learning and/or work expertise could be worth credit at a college or university.

The innovative, fully online PLA Accelerator helps you promote Prior Learning Assessment more effectively at your institution by engaging and empowering your adult students to self-identify tests, certifications, and expertise cultivated in the workplace that could be creditworthy. The more adult learners know about your PLA programs, the more likely they are to fulfill their dreams of college completion at your institution.
