PLA Is Your Business


Prior learning assessment, or PLA, is a term used for the various methods that postsecondary institutions employ to evaluate a student’s experiential learning for college credit. As more institutions embrace PLA, two of the questions they frequently have are, “What should my organization be charging for the various PLA services we want to offer?” and “What are the costs to my organization?”


The answers to these questions require institutions to consider the overall PLA Business Model. This report explores: what is meant by business model, how decisions about a PLA program’s structure or implementation affects the business model, how decisions about the pricing of PLA services are made, and what institutions should keep in mind as they examine their own business models for PLA.
