Students may earn up to 12 s.h. of course credit in the major through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA). PLA evaluates the college-level knowledge and skills an individual has gained outside of the classroom, and determines if and how the knowledge and skills acquired translates to specific college-level courses. PLA awards credit for LEARNING, not just for experience or time “on the job”. Students who wish to earn course credit through PLA must consult with the academic advisor for their academic program, and follow the Department of Health Promotion approved process.

** Students must enroll in a minimum total of 8 semester hours in order to graduate.
