In this article, the focus is on recognition of prior learning (RPL) in the United States of America (USA) and Canada. The aim is to inform policy makers and RPL implementers (in South Africa) regarding the principles and implementation of RPL. Methods of assessment, financial implications, best practices, etc are discussed. Research data on RPL from these countries, as well as one case study (an American university) form the basis of the discussion. It is argued, in conclusion, that closer co-operation amongst South African institutions for higher education in South Africa (SA) is necessary to develop a national RPL strategy for higher education.
