Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) N Credit
The Request for Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) N Credit may be utilized if a student feels that prior learning, obtained in settings other than a traditional college environment, could be judged to be of collegiate level and equivalent to a course or courses offered at Columbus State Community College.
Students requesting a credit through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) will:
- Meet with the appropriate department chairperson and obtain approval to develop a learning portfolio.
- Submit this completed form to the faculty advisor, along with the receipt for $50.00 obtained from the Cashier's Office, Upper Level, Rhodes Hall.
- Submit the completed portfolio to the faculty advisor.
Note: A student with only non-traditional credit on his or her academic records will be unable to obtain a transcript until the student has successfully completed a Columbus State course. N Credit is calculated as part of the earned credit hours but not as part of the grade point average.
For more information regarding the N credit process, contact the appropriate department chairperson. You may call the Telephone Information Center at 614-287-5353 for assistance in contacting the chairperson.
If you have questions about the status of a submitted N Credit form you may contact:
