Prior Learning and Assessment Recognition (PLAR)

The Writing Centre offers tutoring support for TRU students engaged in the Prior Learning and Assessment Recognition (PLAR) process. Writing Centre tutors can provide writing feedback on your PLAR portfolio.

PLAR students can make an appointment on the Undergraduate schedule in WCOnline. Both synchronous and asynchronous appointments are available. 

If no appointment is available, please email the following information to writing_ctr@tru.ca:

  • Subject line — PLAR
  • Your name and TRU Student ID number
  • A maximum of two files (a copy of your assignment expectations and your draft). The file with your writing must be in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx). 
  • Please include a detailed description of what you’d like help with at the top of your draft, i.e., specific questions, or the areas you’d like the tutor to pay close attention to.
Appointments are asynchronous. An online tutor will read your draft, provide feedback, and upload their response, usually within two business days.
 
Please note: The Writing Centre is closed on weekends. We reply to emails Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
