Prior learning is knowledge and skills gained through: work and life experience, military training and experience, formal and informal education, and training from in- and out-of-state institutions, including foreign institutions. Identifying credit for prior learning can be accomplished by an assessment process (PLA), conducted by qualified faculty that may result in one or several courses being posted on your transcript. Up to 25% of the total credits required for a degree or certificate may be earned through the PLA process. LWTech awarding PLA credits does not guarantee or imply that other institutions will accept those credits. If credit is awarded, you are responsible for paying the transcription charge.
College Account Username
Lake Washington Institute of Technology (LWTech) recognizes that usage of primary names, whenever possible, is key to creating an inclusive and welcoming learning environment for all students. A primary name, sometimes referred to as preferred name, is a first name that students can designate to be used instead of a legal first name. You may use either a preferred or primary name. Currently, you may request the college update your LWTech email address and Canvas display name to reflect a preferred name. It is important to note that making these changes to the college assigned email address and Canvas display name is not the same as a legal name change through a court system. When you update your primary name at LWTech, this change is reflected on all classroom rosters used by instructors. You can update your primary name online using LionsLink. To change your LWTech email address to your primary name, please contact the Vice President of Student Services with your request.
