About PLAR
phone

PLAR is a process that helps learners identify past learning that has been acquired through independent study, work and other life experiences. PLAR allows past learning to be recognized as a credit.

PLAR Application deadline

The deadline to apply for PLAR is the tenth day of class.

Students may apply for PLAR, provided they have been admitted to a program. In order to be eligible for PLAR:
