The Experiential Learning Opportunity (ELO) program is very exciting! You can design your own learning environment with work or an internship that can apply towards your education. For instance, you may already be working or volunteering at a business or service where you are learning various practical elements that could be counted for credit.
Choose a particular course where several of the competencies would be met through your hands-on experience. You would work with a VLACS instructor to design and complete the ELO and the agreed upon course work. The student then uses completed online course work or real-world experiences to demonstrate understanding of course competencies.
