Prior Learning Assessments

Students can earn academic credit for demonstrating college-level knowledge and competencies outside of the postsecondary education. Nocti Business Solutions have collaborated with the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS) to have entry level battery of assessments reviewed and recommended for college credit. NCCRS utilized expert input from professors and industry leaders in their respective fields to review each assessment to determine its rigor. Nocti's PLAs can evaluate the learning and knowledge that you have acquired through previous experience outside of academic settings and determine your eligibility for credit recommendations. 


Process for Prior Learning Assessment

  • Step 1: View the list of NBS PLAs that have been recommended for college credit. By clicking on a PLA title, you can examine the blueprint for that assessment containing the competencies covered on that assessment.
  • Step 2: View the list of 1500+ colleges and universities that recognize NCCRS.
  • Step 3: If your school appears on the list, visit with your academic advisor to ensure your degree program will grant credit. If your college or university does not appear on the list, print the assessment blueprint to present to your school officials when inquiring about acceptance of college credit recommendations.
  • Step 4: Take and pass any NBS PLA with a score of 70% or higher and receive a report with the results that you can then present to your school to receive from one to six hours of credit for prior learning, depending on the PLA.


The cost per NBS PLA is $150.00, not including official transcript fees.
