Prior Learning Assessment and
Recognition

Evaluations and Transfer Credit

5.3.3 Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition

Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) allows you to demonstrate the university-level knowledge that you have gained informally through work or life experiences. By preparing a detailed portfolio for assessment, you may receive up to a maximum amount of credit within your AU program.

You will be asked to submit your PLAR application and PLAR fee after you have been assigned to a mentor.

While transfer credit for individual field placement, professional seminars, work experience, life experience, or elementary skills is not normally granted, students should contact the Centre for Learning Accreditation for information. The office will help you determine which learning experiences may be evaluated for credit towards a program.
