3. Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition

TRU recognizes that adults acquire skills and knowledge through their life experience, beyond the learning acquired through formal education. TRU offers methods to assess this non-formal or prior learning.

Prior learning assessment and recognition methods are available to students in programs offered through TRU and may include challenge examinations, portfolio-assisted assessment, workplace assessment and/or other types of assessment methods.

Refer to the full policy or email plar_ol@tru.ca for further information.
