Skills Quick List

Liberty University Online is proud to be an educational partner with professional adults from many diverse backgrounds and skill-levels. We recognize that adult learners bring valuable experience to academic fields in higher education.  We have identified the most common areas in which prior learning assessment is available through Liberty University. The Skills Quick List matches skill-levels to opportunities for prior learning assessment.   Prior Learning Assessment Opportunities may include examinations and portfolio.

The Skills Quick List serves only as a guide and makes no guarantee that credit will be awarded. All training, credentials, examinations, and portfolios must be evaluated on an individual basis, in order to determine if college-level competencies have been achieved. Liberty University does not award credit for occupational experience or years of service.  Liberty University provides prior learning assessment for a limited number of skill sets.

Prior Learning Assessment is only applicable to undergraduate degree programs. Before applying for PLA, please be aware that it is viewed only as transfer credit and will not be accepted as credit taken through Liberty University. It is not applicable to graduate degree programs. Names of corporations, companies, and businesses identified herein are not intended to imply sponsorship or endorsement of, or affiliation with Liberty University. Credit recommendations for training, licenses, certificates, or diploma coursework are subject to institutional standards, policies, and requirements for Prior Learning Assessment credit determinations and awards. The determination of credit equivalency and its application to program requirements is both institution and program specific. A student cannot earn more than 30 credits through PLA with the exception for credit that has been approved through the Academic Council. Due to individual programmatic policies and requirements, this Guide makes no guarantees as to the credit determinations for training, licenses, certificates, or diploma coursework listed herein. The final determination of which, if any, Prior Learning Assessment credits that are applied depends on academic policies of Liberty University. Any discussions with admissions consultants, new enrollment specialists, advisers, portfolio coordinators or other members of staff or faculty concerning possible application of such credits are only estimates and not binding on the institution. The awarding of credits and the determination of applicability of those credits to degree completion requirements can only be made after official review by a Prior Learning Assessor.
