Prior Learning Assessment (PLA)
Montana has an ongoing need to increase access and promote affordability to better enable Montana’s adult population to pursue higher and continuing education. Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) provides an additional tool for the Montana University System (MUS) to engage and retain new and returning adult learners.
In August 2014, Governor Steve Bullock announced that Montana joined 33 states in an initiative to increase the number of Montanans with a college credential. Our efforts will help build awareness and understanding of PLA in Montana and on our MUS campuses across the state.
