Prior Learning from Experience allows people with significant professional and/or community-based experience to kick-start or accelerate a college degree. Students receive significant support from peers and faculty in learning how to assemble a portfolio of documentary essays that show the “college equivalent learning” they have gained through professional and/or community-based work. Students earn credit through a combination of coursework, and separate faculty assessments of completed documentary learning essays. This separate and economical assessment and award of credit for prior learning speeds time to degree.  Students completing a PLE document generally describe the experience as “transformative,” helping them to understand the college level equivalence of their professional and community-based experience, as well as preparing them for future academic and professional work. The program has a prerequisite course, which you will find under “Writing from Life.” You will also find further information, including a video, at https://www.evergreen.edu/ple .
