Marylhurst Holds Prior Learning Assessment Information Session

Event shares details on how to turn work/life learning into college credit

Learning gained through life and work experience can be translated into college credit through Marylhurst University's Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program. Through the University's PLA program, students may earn credit toward – and reduce the expense of – a bachelor's degree by documenting knowledge and skills they've gained during years of work and life learning. Learn about the program at the university's spring PLA information session on Thursday, June 5 at 6:30 p.m. on the Marylhurst campus. At the information session, PLA instructors 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 up to 45 credits toward an undergraduate degree through this writing-based portfolio process.
