Standards for Awarding Credit for PLA

- Academic credit will only be awarded for those courses directly applicable to curriculum requirements at FRCC and to the student’s declared certificate or degree program listed in the college’s catalog.

- A student may not apply for PLA credit for a course in which they are currently enrolled.

- All work assessed for PLA must meet or exceed "C" level work. Minimum cut-off scores on standardized tests are also established to meet the "C" grade level. A student must take the course if they do not meet the minimum cut-off score.

- A student may use PLA to fulfill all degree/certificate graduation requirements except for the mandatory 25% residency requirement.

- If pursuing a transfer degree (A.A., A.S., or A.G.S. Articulated degree program), PLA will be granted for the purpose of satisfying graduation requirements. Because credits may not transfer to all colleges, contact your transferring college to determine their PLA requirements.
