Before contacting the ACE Resource Center, please read below to see if we can answer your questions:
What is an ACE Credit Recommendation?
An ACE credit recommendation is a formal recommendation to colleges and universities, requesting the award of college credit for military and corporate training and other kinds of courses taken outside the college classroom and reviewed by ACE.

Need a Transcript for Your ACE Credit Recommendations?
Which colleges and universities consider ACE credit recommendations?
- Colleges that consider ACE credit recommendations, and other credit for prior learning options are listed in the ACE College and University Network. Remember, the institution you are applying to has the sole discretion to determine whether it will grant transfer credit for your ACE credit recommendations.
How do I apply ACE credit recommendations toward transfer credit?
Each college decides what will count as transfer credit and how it will transfer.
Every college provides transfer credit policies and procedures, including forms you will need to complete. To find this information, check the college's catalog or website and search for "academic policies and procedures" or "transfer credit". Once you know the correct policies and procedures, complete the process.
The Resource Center can assist you if your ACE credit recommendations have been denied transfer credit. In order for us to help you, make sure you can answer "yes" to the following:
Did you find your college's transfer policies?
Did you follow the college's transfer procedures?
Did the college deny transfer credit for your ACE credit recommendations?
If you followed the right transfer procedures and were denied credit, did you complete ACE's request for assistance form?
