We recognize that adults may have acquired college-level learning through life experience such as self-directed study, paid employment, volunteer work, travel, and non-college courses. Through the Flexible Assessment process, learning may be recognized for credit in college programs. In order to be eligible for COTR credit, prior learning must be:
- at a college course equivalent level
- include the appropriate balance of theory and practice.
If you think that you may be a candidate for flexible assessment, please contact the Flexible Assessment (FA) Coordinator.
If you have completed a course(s) at another institution that is equivalent to a COTR course, you may be eligible for Transfer Credit.
Note: Flexible Assessment is often commonly referred to as Prior Learning Assessment (PLA), or Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR), or Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)..
