Current Empire State College Professional Learning Evaluations
An Empire State College Professional Learning Evaluation (PLE) is a college-credit recommendation developed by SUNY Empire for college-level learning acquired outside of a college or university, such as an on-the-job training program. A SUNY Empire matriculated student who presents the necessary documentation may incorporate the recommended credit into a SUNY Empire degree program proposal, subject to any other applicable academic policies. All SUNY Empire professional learning evaluation credit recommendations are available to any matriculated student in the college. See the list of current PLEs.
