What is the College Level Examination Program (CLEP)?

What is Prior Learning Assessment (PLA)?

PLA (Prior Learning Assessment) allows you to earn college credits from what you have learned outside the classroom. Awarding of credit for life experience operates on the belief that college-level learning, no matter how it is gained, deserves college credits. Therefore, nearly any type of experiential learning can gain college credit as long as:

  1. It is equivalent to a course or courses at Bloomfield College and
  2. You can prove your expertise.
