What is PLA?

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) is the process for awarding credit for learning that has taken place away from the college classroom. 

  • Credit may be awarded for work training, non-accredited classes, self-study, experience, and more. 
  • Credit can only be awarded for classes offered by Highline College.
  • With faculty approval and guidance, students will demonstrate their competence in class content.
  • Faculty will assist you in determining the best way to demonstrate your learning experience.
  • Military and veterans can receive college credit for military training.  Follow the link to see how, or contact the PLA Coordinator to help facilitate the process.
