Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition

Vancouver Community College (VCC; the College) recognizes that knowledge and skills are acquired in a variety of ways, such as informal and non-credit education, work experiences, training, self-study, travel, recreation, community involvement, Indigenous knowledge and ways of being and other life experiences, outside the formal post-secondary education system.

This policy establishes the guidelines regarding the systematic and consistent approach to the assessment, recognition and equivalencies of prior learning experiences for formal credit.
