Credit for Work Place Training and Experience

Adults with extensive workplace training and experience in Canada or elsewhere may be able to receive credit toward a university degree by completing a 'Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition' process known as PLAR. PLAR can significantly reduce the number of credits you need to complete a degree, saving you time and money.  Although it takes time and commitment, most students report it as a rewarding and eye-opening experience.

The cost for a prior learning assessment ranges from about $500 to over $1000.

The following universities offer Prior Learning Assessments for credit toward their online degrees.
