There are significant time and cost investments that you must make to earn your degree. University of Phoenix understands and wants to help you save time and money by giving you credit for prior learning experience.
A Professional Training Portfolio contains documents that demonstrate prior learning experience. The educational or training programs that you’ve completed through a corporate or professional training institution may transfer to elective or general education credits. The same may be true for unaccredited college credits.
These are the types of documentation that will be eligible for PLA review:
To find out if your specific industry or corporate training qualifies, consult the Apollo Quick List (Pre-Evaluated Training List).
University of Phoenix has relationships with corporations throughout the country. We’ve encourage companies who offer in-house training programs to submit their course information to us and have it evaluated for college credit.
Find out if your company has submitted its training programs to University of Phoenix and if any of its courses qualify for college-level credit by reviewing the Credit Recommendation Guide.
When you’ve identified the prior training you’ve received that best qualifies for PLA credit evaluation, the next step is to read about the Submission Process.
Because our academic integrity must be maintained, any inaccuracies in your portfolio contents will result in immediate investigation. When the investigation is complete, the application and documentation will be forwarded to the Committee on Ethical Standards.
Your portfolio, or other submission, will be closed to further evaluation until a final determination is made.
