As of July 11th, all PLA fees are subject to sales tax assessment based on state law where the submitting student resides. Going forward, any student living in a state that charges sales tax will have his or her PLA invoice taxed accordingly.
If you’re awarded credits that you don’t need right away, you can request that they be placed in reserve status for future use. This request must be submitted in writing before our PLA evaluation is completed. To do this, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your full name and IRN, requesting that the surplus credits be placed in reserve.
To request the release of your reserved credits, email email@example.com. Include your full name, IRN and our acknowledgement of the fees associated with applying the credits to your program of study.
You will not be invoiced for credits that are awarded but not applied to your account.
If you disagree with your professional portfolio or experiential essay results, you may still be eligible to receive credits through the credit challenge process. To be eligible, you must have complied with your evaluator’s request to provide complete information about your professional experience during the initial evaluation process. And, if you’ve submitted an experiential essay and not received the credit that you expected, you must have rewritten your essay and resubmitted it for a second evaluation before you proceed to a credit challenge.
To issue a credit challenge you must follow these steps:
Once you’ve submitted your email and supporting documents, you’ll receive an email notifying you if your credit challenge was approved. If approved, your file will be reviewed by the PLA supervisor. Please note: The challenge may result in fewer, the same, or more credits being awarded. After the credit challenge has been reviewed and a final decision is made by the PLA Supervisor, it cannot be disputed further.
If you have any questions about the credit challenge process, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
