NAIT recognizes that knowledge and skills are gained in different ways. To support our community of learners, NAIT will occasionally award appropriate credit or recognition for prior learning obtained through informal training or work or life experience. This process is referred to as Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR).
Course credit may be granted to applicants who have presented suitable evidence that their skills and knowledge are equal to students who have completed the curriculum, based on the outcomes identified for each course.
Take this quiz to see if you qualify
Students must have been accepted to their NAIT credit program before submitting a request for Transfer Credit, Credential Recognition or PLAR. Open Studies students are not eligible to apply for advanced credit as they have not been accepted to a NAIT program.
It will take a maximum of 6 weeks to complete your RPL assessment.
If you have been accepted to one of the programs listed below, you will need to pay a $150 evaluation fee for each course challenged to have your prior learning assessed. Please check the candidate guide on your program web page to identify which courses are formalized for PLAR credit.
Advanced credit may help you achieve your educational goals sooner, but it may affect your eligibility for financial aid or academic honours.
This is because the definition of full-time status for financial aid may be different than NAIT’s. Only the courses you actually take at NAIT count towards determining full-time status.
For questions about financial aid, contact the Student Service Centre, CAT 180, Centre for Applied Technology.
For questions about academic honours, including semester honours, the Dean’s Honour Roll, an honours diploma/certificate, or awards, review NAIT’s Academic Regulations and Procedures (pdf), or contact advising or program staff.
