American Council on Education (ACE) Recommendation Credit

What Is ACE Credit?

The American Council on Education (ACE) College Credit Recommendation Service connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken outside traditional degree programs. College credit may also be awarded through direct evaluation of service school transcripts. For ACE-evaluated credit, the training and/or examination must be evaluated by ACE and included in the ACE Guide.


How Can I Earn ACE Credit?

To find out if an organization or company you've trained with has a recommended credit award, visit the ACE Guide. You can search by organization or by a specific training exam that you have taken. This guide will give you the credit equivalence that you can use to discuss earning credit with your advisor.

For ACE-evaluated credit, students must request and submit to the college an official transcript from ACE in order to receive credit.


Is There a Cost for ACE Credit?

To obtain a transcript with ACE, you can create an account for free. There is a cost (subject to change) of $40 for the first transcript and $15 for each additional transcript.
