Prior Learning Assessment Programs

At UA Little Rock, we value the life experiences of our students and are committed to helping working and adult learners achieve their higher education goals. We are proud to offer pathways for certain experiences to be counted toward graduation requirements through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA).

PLA is the evaluation and assessment of an individual’s life learning for college credit, certification, or advanced standing toward further education or training. Learn more about PLA’s at
