Prior Learning Assessment
Selkirk College recognizes experience and expertise gained by students prior to entry into College programs. Through a prior learning assessment (PLAR) process, a student may receive course credits for knowledge and experience acquired in the workplace. Through an interview and documentation process including the student, a PLAR advisor, and the instructor, the student's experience is evaluated in relation to the course requirements. Through PLAR a student may receive credit for one or more courses in a given program.
