Independent Study-Prior Learning Assessment  (1-2)
Assists students who wish to work on a Prior Learning Assessment project. PLA orientation sessions are provided by faculty and support staff. Instruction includes documentation requirements, assessment, transcript rules, transfer information and restrictions. Credits are awarded for demonstrated learning outcomes that are appropriate to a particular course offering. Faculty, as the content specialists, assesses and recognizes prior learning and makes the determination of credit awards. Credit for PLA may be granted only upon the recommendation of faculty who are appropriately qualified and who are on a regular appointment with the college on a continuing basis. Successful PLA coursework will be transcript on a notation basis. This is a pass/no-credit course.
