Prior Learning Assessment is an approach to earning credit that allows CU undergraduate students to seek credit for learning that occurred outside the traditional educational setting.

This session provides an overview of the policies and procedures for students using PLA.

Prior learning credits, if awarded, may apply either toward the academic major, minor or required elective coursework within the bachelor's degree, with limitations. A maximum of 21 prior learning credits can be awarded and these credits may not be included within the thirty-six residency credits completed at Concordia University. Prior Learning Assessment falls within the "transfer credit" policies of the Registrar's Office. The fee for reviewing such documentation is $80 per credit, which is billed to the student account at the time of the review.


This event is open to CUW and CUAA Faculty/Staff.
