Get Credit for What You Know

Earn college credit for what you already know!

At SAU, we know that adult students bring a wealth of life experiences with them to the classroom. Sometimes, these experiences come with understanding of college-level concepts.

We want to identify the experiences of yours that may be worth college credit using the Prior Learning Assessment, or PLA. Help us determine whether PLA is an option for you by filling out our Autobiographical Outline.
