Students

  • For over two decades, nontraditional students have comprised close to 40 percent of the college population, spanning a range of backgrounds and experiences from Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans and GED® credential holders to 55-year-old professionals and skilled workers in career transition. ACE is committed to supporting this student population and to finding ways to enhance degree access and attainment.

    Many colleges and universities evaluate the college-level knowledge and skills an individual has gained outside of the classroom for college credit. This evaluation is called prior learning assessment (PLA), but may also be referred to as credit for prior learning or experiential learning. There are many programs and services available to help you earn credit for your workplace training, military service, and other experiential learning toward a college or university degree program.
