In order to address projected shortages of U.S. college students earning degrees in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM), colleges should take advantage of the asset that many of their student veterans arrive on campus possessing: prior learning, which is measured by Prior Learning Assessments (PLA). This session will focus on Veteran PLA students at North Lake College, including exam scores, later success in STEM classes, and the Gen. Richard Myers Biomedical Equipment Technology Program.
