ACE CREDIT connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit at colleges and universities for formal courses and examinations taken in the workplace or other settings outside traditional higher education.
These recommendations do not guarantee you will receive college credit for these classes. The decision is made independently by each college or university. The ACE website lists the Colleges and Universities that have agreed to accept the credit recommendations when appropriate.
Before enrolling into a course specifically to transfer the credits to the college or university, you are attending please confirm directly with the school that they will accept the credits upon successful completion of the class.
