Center for Education Attainment and Innovation

December 30, 1899

 

From its first programs for returning World War II veterans, ACE's Center for Education Attainment and Innovation has led the national movement to recognize and promote adult learner programs in higher education. As the highly respected leader in the evaluation of workforce and military training, the Center demonstrates its commitment to adult learning and attainment through a wide range of programs and initiatives that support postsecondary access and success.

​GED® testing, evaluation of military and workforce training, web portals and navigation tools, and educational pathways are key program areas that demonstrate ACE’s longstanding commitment to adult learners. As more and more Americans take multiple paths to earning postsecondary credentials, ACE continues to develop programs and services to support adult learning and attainment.

CEAI Initiatives

ACE CREDIT

ACE Credit connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken outside of traditional degree programs.​

​Military Programs

ACE’s Military Programs provide a critical link between the U. S. Department of Defense and higher education through the review of military training (courses) and experiences (occupations) with the goal of awarding equivalent college credits for those experiences.

​College and University Partnerships

The Office of College and University Partnerships collaborates with higher education institutions and other organizations to boost adult learners’ postsecondary attainment, working toward greater awareness, acceptance, and application of ACE credit recommendations for military and corporate training, and other prior learning assessment options.

Supporting Student Veterans

ACE Veterans’ Programs promotes access to and success in higher education for service members, veterans, and their families who are eligible for benefits under the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Assistance Act of 2008.

Innovative Practices

The Center for Education Attainment and Innovation is involved in a number of initiatives designed to better help students, faculty, and institutional leaders identify innovations with measurable results best suited to their unique campus needs.
