PLA Portal in the Works for the Central Motherlode Region

AcademyOne has been selected by California’s West Hills Community College District to implement their web-based prior learning assessment and recognition platform in support of WHCCD’s Quick Path Program. San Joaquin Delta College and the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning are also partnering on the project that will serve as proof of concept by establishing a regional PLA framework and eventually scale up through the state.

The district's initiative is being funded through a CA Department of Finance Award for Innovation in Higher Education. “The Prior Learning Assessment platform is expected to reduce the time it takes students to complete degrees and credentials and reduce the total cost of attendance for our students, which is the intent of the Award for Innovation,” said WHCCD Director of Grants Anita Wright.
