Prior Learning
Looking for college credit for real-world experience? Once you’re admitted as a student here, you can enroll in our Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program, which grants academic credit for knowledge gained outside of college. Examples include knowledge acquired on the job, in training programs, by running a business, working with volunteer organizations, or even pursuing a hobby.

We welcome all community college graduates. Some community colleges have agreements with APU that align earned associate degrees with specific bachelor’s programs for maximum transfer credits. Find out if we have an agreement with your school. Plus, all community college graduates can submit a transfer credit evaluation and earn up to 30 general education credits automatically just for having earned an A.A. or A.S. degree.
