"Glendale University does not award college credit for experience and this must be made clear. Professional educators worldwide agree that "life experience" in and of itself is NOT worthy of college credit. What PLA is concerned with is learning, regardless of how it was obtained. We assess the information furnished and gathered, to determine the level of your skills, knowledge and competence you acquired from your work experience, your voluntary activities, your avocation, your military service, your homemaking experience and knowledge from independent study. In brief, we analyze your "experiential learning" and this term legitimately describes most of the learning that occurs in our lives."
"Redding University developed our Prior Learning Program to reward those individuals who have the knowledge required for a university degree, but until now, were denied the better job or promotion they deserved. The following minimum requirements are needed to qualify for a degree. Life experience is any experience you have relevant to your major and is separate from work experience and classroom education. Depending upon the particular circumstance, military experience qualifies as either work or life experience."
"To apply for a Bachelor's Degree on the basis of your previous work and life experience, you should have at least four years of work or life experience relevant to the major you are interested in."
"Have you achieved, through academic work and life experience, a level of competency whereby you feel confident of your ability, but have been passed over for promotions and other advantages while the college graduates in your office or field advance by leaps and bounds just because they have a few extra letters after their name? Suffield University believes that knowledge earned through former work experiences, corporate training, military service and other non-traditional learning activities are a valuable addition to knowledge gained through traditional classroom settings."
