Portfolios must be submitted electronically via email attachment to the PLA Office at firstname.lastname@example.org and are not returned.
The assessment fee, if any, is posted to your account when the portfolio is forwarded to the faculty assessor.
The first portfolio assessment is included with the IDS102 course fee if the portfolio is submitted to PLA Office for assessment within 30 days of the end of the IDS102 class.
Assessment fees are required for additional portfolios and must be paid for the assessment to begin; current fee information is posted in the online catalog.
Portfolio assessment takes 2-3 months or more, depending upon faculty assessor availability and whether more information is requested.
Faculty assessors are assigned after receipt and administrative review of portfolios by the PLA Office; they are encouraged to complete their assessments within 30 days of receipt of all portfolio review materials, including any additional information if requested and received.
You must respond within 30 days to any request for more information or the assessment process will end, with the final results based upon the last submission.
Submit your portfolio electronically as a pdf or MS Word attachment from your Charter Oak email. Include your name and the course being challenged in the document name. If your documentary evidence must be submitted separately, name each document similarly and include a numeral at the beginning of each document name to order them appropriately.
Credit will be posted to your transcript within 10-15 business days after any credit award.
All communications and results will be sent to your Charter Oak email.
