Credit Recommendation Services

​The American Council on Education’s (ACE) College Credit Recommendation Services provide students with a means for obtaining credit for formal training in workplace and military settings that takes place outside traditional degree programs. These services began in 1945 when ACE Military Evaluations first started reviewing military training (courses) and experiences (occupations) for college credit recommendations. In 1974, ACE expanded these services when it started its CREDIT® program which helps students by aligning workplace learning with college and university degree programs.
