Credit Transfer & Prior Learning and Assessment Recognition (PLAR)

You can receive recognition for that experience through Credit Transfer and Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition. Find out more about Credit Transfer and PLAR.

Degree Pathways

Degree pathways such as articulation agreements and credit transfers give you the opportunity to begin your studies at one institution and finish at another. For example, you may decide to obtain a diploma from Holland College and then further your studies at a university. 

There are a variety of joint applied degree programs; as well as 2+2 programs, which mean that you can earn your diploma at Holland College and then earn your university degree in as little as two additional years. Find out more about our degree pathways.
