Throughout the entire experience, students will work one-on-one with a dedicated Broward UP Case Manager. Together, they will complete career assessments, goal setting exercises, and explore Broward College programs that ladder into one another, increasing students’ lifetime learning and earning potential.

For students transitioning from non-credit to credit programs, Case Managers can provide information about how students can accelerate technical certificate or degree programs through Credit for Prior Learning. This can include earning college-level credits through Prior Learning Assessments (PLA) - knowledge gained through prior work and/or military experience - as well as through previously earned licenses and industry certifications.
