Guides for Frequently Requested Subjects

The university has prepared detailed guides in subject areas where credit is most frequently sought through Prior Learning Assessment. These guides will help with the submission process for your individualized Prior Learning Assessment request. Not all subjects eligible for evaluation are included. Please consult your mentor about evaluation of other subjects.

To get started with documenting your prior learning:

  1. Describe what you do.
  2. Compare a real and hypothetical situation in this field.
  3. Identify informal “rules” in this field.
  4. Examine the role of a professional in this field.
  5. Apply your knowledge in a problem-solving situation.
  6. Identify critical issues in the field.
  7. Teach others.
  8. Offer additional information or evidence of your learning.
