For several of our programs, Mesa Community College offers Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) for students with existing industry certifications, licenses, and approved corporate training. With approved PLA, you can receive credits at no cost for industry recognized credentials. Explore the available programs and their associated PLA forms below.
Please note, in order to access and complete a PLA form, you must be an active MCC student and have an MEID.
We are always working to expand PLA opportunities to include more degrees that accept prior learning that should be available in the near future. If you have an industry recognized credential or corporate training that you would like us to evaluate which is not on the list, please email your request to the Office of the Deans of Instruction at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Whether you’re interested in an associate’s degree, a certificate in your field, transferring to a four-year university, or you just want to take some classes for your own personal satisfaction, Mesa Community College has programs to suit your personal goals.
