At Rocky Mountain College, you can receive credit for previous learning through PLAR. PLAR allows a student to receive academic credit for past, extensive, learning experiences. Once a student has successfully been accepted into a program then they will have a consultation with an academic advisor. During the consultation the academic advisor determines what credits can be completed through the PLAR process. In addition the academic advisor will supply the student with the PLAR application to be completed and returned to the Vice President, Academic. A portfolio of learning experiences is to be attached to the application and once the required/satisfactory information has been submitted then these credits are applied to the student transcript as PLAR transfer credits.
