Learning Objectives

UNG is participating in Complete College Georgia (CCG) initiatives created by Governor Deal.  These initiatives include a statewide effort to increase attainment of a high quality certificate or college degree.

An explanation of CCG:  http://www.usg.edu/educational_access/complete_college_georgia)

One method of accomplishing this goal is by shortening the time to degree completion and providing college course credit for prior learning experiences (PLE).   Criminal justice students can potentially receive college course credit for learning that occurs in the field without actually enrolling and completing the course on campus.

To receive PLE credit, the student will be required by the University to complete a prior learning assessment portfolio (PLA).  The portfolio will demonstrate which course the student is seeking credit as well as require the student to provide evidence in the form of documentation, testing, training, etc. that demonstrates the student has meet the requirements of the course.  

A completed PLA will be reviewed by the Criminal Justice faculty, who are subject matter experts, to determine if credit for the course should be awarded to the student. 

The PLA process is based on course descriptions and Bloom’s taxonomy
