PLA may help you earn up to 60 college credits as a result of learning you gained outside the traditional classroom setting.
PLA saves your tuition dollars by awarding credits for courses in which you demonstrate college level learning; this includes but is not limited to: work history, military and volunteer service and other life experiences.
PLA makes it possible for you to earn your Bachelor Degree in half the time.
PLA participants fulfill a residency requirement of 34 credit hours with the University to earn the degree.
