Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR)

PLAR in Computing PTS is achieved via written examination on a course by course basis and is done by faculty members in the program area.

Students will typically need to spend a few weeks to work through the current course outline syllabus and study the related text before attempting to write the PLAR exam.

There is a $195 non-refundable fee charged in advance for assessment exam. We currently have PLAR exams for the majority of computer application courses, some database and most of the popular programming languages.

Not all courses have PLAR credit available, and there is a limit on how many total PLAR credits you can receive.

Call 604-432-8465 or email cstpts@bcit.ca to find out if there is a PLAR available for the course you wish to receive credit.
