Current Empire State College Professional Learning Evaluations

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