Through a Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) students can earn college credit for knowledge that was obtained after completing high school (undergraduate) or post-baccalaureate (graduate) through work experience (military or civilian), in-service/corporate training programs, volunteer activities, workshops, and/or personal study. To earn PLA credit, students must prepare a portfolio which will be reviewed by a qualified faculty member.

Students who are interested in the PLA process for academic credit should contact an academic advisor for further information and refer to the Wilmington University Prior Learning Assessment Guide for Students (see below).
