Are you thinking about returning to or starting college?

Could you have college credits under your belt and not know it!

 

Prior Learning Assessment Meetup at NJIT

Hear Dorothy Wax of the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning (CAEL) speak about new ways to jumpstart your college work at NJIT with credits earned based on what you already know.   


When: Thursday, August 16, 2012

Time: 6:00pm -7:30pm

Where:  New Jersey Institute of Technology

Campus Center Room 240

 

If you’ve had training at work, in the military, through government agencies or professional associations, registered apprenticeships or professional certifications you could already have college credit and not know it!

Adults who have never earned a single college credit likely have a wealth of skills, competencies, and learning that may be worth college credit. This learning can come from various sources: on-the-job training, work experience, military training, hobbies, self-directed and open source courseware study, and community service. Through Prior Learning Assessment (PLA), students can have skills, competencies, and learning evaluated for possible college credit. Research shows that PLA students earn degrees and credentials in less time, with better success, and at a much lower cost to themselves and to taxpayers.

NJIT has invited this CAEL expert to lead this Meetup as part of our commitment to help adult learners learn all their options including ones like Prior Learning Assessment which can shorten the time and expense of enrolling in a formal NJIT degree program.  The fewer credits you have to take, the closer to the NJIT degree you will be.

Organizer

New Jersey Institute of Technology Division of Continuing Professional Education

Continuing Education at New Jersey Institute of Technology has a decidedly "business to business" orientation focuses on corporate education and training.  Its secondary orientation is "business to consumer" so as to make it easy for non-traditional, part-time adult students to take part in NJIT's academic programs.

CPE synthesizes the many interdisciplinary and technologically enhanced teaching and learning initiatives and programs that occur throughout NJIT and makes all these available to adults 24 years and older who are non-traditional students who typically study part-time.

While the specific focus is on working professionals at their places of work, CPE also offers select programs that allow adult learners to earn NJIT credentials on a part-time basis in pursuit either of complete NJIT degrees (graduate and undergraduate), stand-alone academic certificates (graduate, undergraduate, and non-credit) or individual credit and non-credit training courses.  Part-time adult students associated with CPE study either at their place of work, at NJIT, at extension sites throughout New Jersey and/or through online or blended means.

Each year CPE educates 9,000 students in degree programs and 7,000 professionals study through online learning and non-credit courses.  Since 1990, NJIT has trained over 60,597 professionals associated with more than 564 companies' courses.  As a result of this commitment and dedication to adult learners and corporations, 25% of engineers working in New Jersey are graduates of NJIT.  Additional points of pride are:

    # 6 in Engineering/Computing Distance Learning (US News and World Report)
    A Top 25 Most Connected Campus (The Princeton Review)
    One of the nation's 25 "most connected" campuses (Forbes.com)
    Top National University (US News and World Report)
    An American Best Value College (The Princeton Review)
