Prior Learning Assessment (PLA)

Community Colleges of Spokane values the college-level knowledge students may have acquired outside the traditional college classroom. You may have acquired this knowledge through your past work, independent reading and study, training programs or in-service courses, military training not evaluated for credit by ACE (American Council on Education), or other experiences. Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) enables you to articulate this knowledge and potentially earn credit for it.

Please refer to the CCS Prior Learning Assessment website before filling out the application form.
