More about PLTW Courses and College Credits
PLTW students are better prepared for post secondary studies and more likely to consider careers in critical STEM fields than their non-PLTW peers, research has shown. More than 100 college and university partners actively recruit PLTW students, providing them with opportunities such as admissions preference, scholarships, and course credit. PLTW works closely with a specific group of colleges, universities, and research institutions known as affiliates that host teacher training and professional development experiences in their states.
