    Please submit a copy of your resume to the PLA Coordinator.  This will help in determining whether or not the portfolio process would benefit you.   If you would benefit from this process, the PLA Coordinator will provide a recommendation based on a resume of your prior experiences. You may submit a copy of your resume to pla@liberty.edu.  
  3. Portfolio Course
    GEED 205 is the required portfolio course. However,  if you are an Education major, you will be taking EDUC 205.  In order to enroll in GEED 205, you must have it noted on your student record that you are “approved to take GEED 205”.  Once approved, your academic advisor will complete the registration process for the course.

    The PLA Coordinator will assign your portfolio to a subject matter expert (SME) in the field. The portfolio will also be reviewed by the Associate Dean or Dean, for a final signature of approval. The expected portfolio process time is 4-6 weeks.  However, depending on the time of year, i.e. holiday, spring break, etc. it could take longer.
