A consultant from the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) will visit Southeast on April 1 to present an analysis of the University's Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) policies and provide recommendation on expanding the program. The campus community is invited to the initial meeting from 8:30-10 a.m. in University Center Ballroom B. Additionally meetings with deans, chairpersons and other stakeholders will take place throughout the day. CAEL is a national expert on PLA -- the process of earning college credit from other sources, such as work, professional and military experience. CAEL's research (Fueling the Race, 2010) indicates that students with PLA credits are 2.5 times more likely to complete a bachelor’s degree than students without. Through PLA, adults learn the value of their experience, boosting their confidence to complete their degrees.
