Do You Have Relevant Education or Work Experience? It Could Mean Credit
Ask about Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR). You could get credit for knowledge and skills from previous work, volunteering and even non-credited education. You can get up to 75% of your credits through PLAR and transfer credits. So that’s just 25% that must come from classes taken at the College. There are charges for PLAR evaluations.

Advanced Standing puts you ahead
You can get credit for previous courses taken in a related area. Then you enter your program at a semester higher than entry level. Read more about Advanced Standing.
Exemptions are credits for complete courses
If you have already completed specific courses, you can get credit for those. Unlike Advanced Standing, however, you do not skip an entire semester. Read more about Exemptions.
