Do I qualify to take a PLA?

To be eligible for the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) program you must meet the following requirements:

  • Be a fully admitted, degree-seeking bachelor's degree student at CSU-Global. Graduate-level courses are not eligible for the PLA program.

  • Be in good academic standing with the university. See What is Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)? for more information.

  • Have successfully completed at least two courses totaling six (6) credit hours at CSU-Global with a cumulative GPA of 3.00 or higher. See the grading scale for more information.

  • Not have already attempted or received a grade for the course(s) to be targeted in the PLA program.

  • Have fewer than the 90 semester hours of allowable transfer credit from prior institutions. Credit earned through PLA is not considered residential credit and will count toward the maximum credit transfer limit (90 credits)  for a combination of all sources (previous institutions, PLA, etc.). Students must have the credit allowance for the Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) credit to count towards the 90 semester hours of transfer credit. See transfer credits for more on transfer limitations.

  • Have at least three years of experience in a CSU-Global Campus course related field.
