Event Focus: How to Turn Work/Life Learning into College Credit
Marylhurst University offers a nationally recognized program that helps degree-seeking students translate life and work experience into college credit. Prospective students can learn more about this Prior Learning Assessment program at a summer information session Thursday, June 6 at 6:30 p.m. on the Marylhurst campus. The PLA program is writing- and research-intensive, but can reduce the time and financial commitment it takes to complete a bachelor's degree by allowing students to earn credit for documented knowledge they've gained during years of work and life learning. At the information session, PLA staff members will share examples of how corporate and on-the-job training, community service, travel study, independent research and related learning experiences can be evaluated for credit toward a degree.
