Welcome to Prior Learning Assessment

Not all learning takes place in a classroom. UH Maui College recognizes that you might have gained significant knowledge through your previous employment, military service, independent study or personal experiences that’s equivalent to college-level work. Students may be able to earn up to 30 credits through Prior Learning Assessment if their learning matches requirements for courses taught at the college.

Make an appointment today to learn if you might qualify for college credit.
