Prior Learning and Assessment Recognition (PLAR)

The Writing Centre offers tutoring support for TRU students engaged in the Prior Learning and Assessment Recognition (PLAR) process. Writing Centre tutors can provide writing feedback on your PLAR portfolio.

Appointments are asynchronous. An online tutor will read your writing assignment, provide written feedback, and upload their response, usually within two business days.

To make an appointment, please email the following information to

  • Subject line — PLAR
  • Your name and TRU Student ID number
  • A maximum of two files (a copy of your assignment expectations and what you have written). The file with your writing must be in Microsoft Word format (.doc or .docx). 
  • Please include a detailed description of what you’d like help with at the top of your paper, i.e., specific questions, or the areas you’d like the tutor to pay close attention to.

Please note: The Writing Centre is closed on weekends. We reply to emails Monday to Friday, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
