Project Lead the Way (PLTW) may be able to articulate to several levels of higher education. Currently PLTW aligns with the college of engineering at both Iowa State University and the University of Iowa. All eight PLTW courses are recognized as being college level courses and are eligible for transcripted credit. Access to this credit is provided through the PLTW certification and end of term assessment process with participating colleges. Information on PLTW alignment to ISU and U of I can be found on the Iowa PLTW website: www.pltwiowa.org
Iowa's community colleges are evaluating the alignment of PLTW courses into Career and Technical programs as well college parallel career option and transfer level programs.
