Mature students and newcomers! Have you been out of school for 1 or more years? Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) and Mature Student Evaluation (MSE) are formal evaluation and credit-granting processes through which mature students may obtain credits for prior learning (the knowledge and skills that adults have acquired through education, work and life experience).

***You must be enrolled in a high school credit course (such as Co-operative Education or Night School) to take advantage of PLAR or MSE. For more information about PLAR and MSE visit the Prior Learning Assessment and Evaluation/Mature Student Evaluation webpage.
