There are a lot of options when it comes to prior learning assessment (PLA), whether it is exams, portfolios, or credit for training.  To help you sort through your options, Tennessee has partnered with the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) to provide you with an estimate of your potential credit for skills and knowledge you already possess.  After answering a few basic questions about yourself and your experiences, the Predictor will provide you with a personalized list of PLA options to consider.

This is a great starting point for your investigation into getting credit for what you already know. The link below will take you to our PLA Predictor, which is an external site.

Find out how much college credit you could receive for what you already know with the Free Credit Predictor Tool. You will receive a free action plan to help you get on the fastest path toward degree completion.

Your action plan is in no way a guarantee that you can earn all of the credits listed. It is important to note that some types of PLA listed in your results will not be available at some institutions. We strongly recommend that you take your results to your local Tennessee institutions and see which options might be best for you. Also, compare your results to the information available elsewhere on this site.
