CREDIT

December 30, 1899

ACE Credit Logo

 

The American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT®) was established in 1974 to connect workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping students gain access to academic credit for formal training taken outside traditional degree programs.

With over 35,000 programs reviewed, CREDIT is the national leader in the evaluation process for education and training obtained outside the classroom including courses, exams, apprenticeships, and other types of nontraditional forms of training.

For 40 years, colleges and universities have trusted ACE to provide reliable course equivalency information to facilitate credit award decisions. Participating organizations include corporations, professional and volunteer associations, schools, training suppliers, labor unions and government agencies, with courses from Arabic to Waste Management.

Students
Colleges and Universities
  • Create and leverage educational partnerships with employers and training providers
  • Connect ACE credit recommendations to your degree programs
  • Support adult learners with their educational goals
Employers and Training Providers
  • Utilize the distinguished ACE brand to gain national recognition as providers of quality training
  • Recruit and retain employees by providing greater access to higher education
  • Offer employees pursuing higher education a flexible, portable and efficient transfer of credits

The work of CREDIT is part of ACE's commitment to expanding flexible completion pathways to help students earn valuable credentials and achieve their professional goals. In December 2019, the CREDIT transcript will be transformed into a modular, digital profile that includes workplace competencies in addition to credit recommendations, allowing students to use their training to seek new employment opportunities as well as apply to college.
