Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR)


Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) is a process to recognize knowledge acquired through work, academic, and life experiences and award credit towards your degree at Mount Royal University. 

If you are interested in having your prior learning assessed through the PLAR process, we recommend you thoroughly review the details outlined on this webpage, as well as the information in the Academic Calendar (Transfer Credit and PLAR) and the Registration Policy (Section 15: Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition). PLAR is a detailed process owned by the student requesting the assessment, this means that all requirements and deadlines are your responsibility.
