About Post’s Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Program

Can you get college credits for work and life experience? Yes! You can potentially save time and money earning your degree at Post University through our Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) Program. This program allows students to earn undergraduate college credit for work experience and certain other life experiences. Through these prior life and work experiences, degree completion can be achieved in less time and at a cost savings.

Undergraduate students in our Prior Learning Assessment Program can create and submit portfolios showcasing prior experience that can qualify for up to 30 credits toward a bachelor’s degree or up to 15 credits toward an associate degree. RN to BSN students can earn 30 college credits through our PLA program for the successful completion of a registered nursing program and passing the National Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses along with verification of valid RN licensure.
