Other High School Partner Services

Prior Learning Assessment

Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) gives students the opportunity to demonstrate learning outside of the college classroom to earn college credit.

Two of the most common options for high school students are Advanced Placement (AP) and Project Lead the Way (PLTW). Both require completion of an exam, receipt of an equivalent score and appropriate documentation submitted to Sinclair Academic Advising in order to receive credit. For more information about PLA, please visit www.sinclair.edu/pla

Transition Advising 

Sinclair's Transition Advisors assist students within selected high schools to successfully transition from high school to college/career, and understand how their College Credit Plus, Tech Prep, and other early college credits support their educational goals.

The Sinclair Transition Advising Team also serves as a partner to high school staff. They support high school teachers and guidance counselors in developing focused academic plans so students can align their college/career goals with a focused major.

For more information about our Transition Advising team, contact us at transition@sinclair.edu.


The goal of Sinclair's School Partnerships Division is to provide comprehensive services to ensure students can successfully launch their early college credit experience with a focus on credential completion or a successful career upon high school graduation.
