Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) uses a range of flexible assessment procedures, including course challenge, to evaluate for credit within the Child and Youth Care program learning that is gained through non-credit education, training or experience.
Learners may receive recognition for demonstrated learning that is consistent with the achievement levels and learning outcomes appropriate to selected courses. The assessment of prior learning will be completed within a special course section dedicated specifically to this function.
A maximum of 10.5 units of academic credit may be obtained through PLA. No course whose equivalent already appears on a student’s transcript may be completed by PLA.
Normally only students who have been admitted to the School of Child and Youth Care can apply for PLA. Initial inquiries should be directed to the Undergraduate Adviser, who can provide PLA application forms and information on deadlines. Access to flexible assessment in any particular year is dependent upon the availability of resources within the School.
No fourth-year courses may be completed by prior learning assessment.
Students whose sessional GPA falls below 3.0 or who fail to receive a C+ in any core CYC or other required course may be required to withdraw from the program.
