College and University Partnerships

December 30, 1899


College and University Partnerships (CUP), an ACE program in the Center for Education Attainment and Innovation, works to advance greater awareness, acceptance, and application of credit for prior learning as a key element for increasing postsecondary participation and completion.

CUP works with higher education institutions, employers, and other key stakeholders to build partnerships, maximize collaborative efforts and increase effective pathways to postsecondary education. Through webinars, technical services, and special initiatives, CUP supports the work of higher education institutions and the learners they serve.

ACE College and University Network: The ACE College and University Network has more than 2,000 institutions that recognize and consider ACE credit recommendations for workplace and military training and occupations and other credit for prior learning options.

Regional Liaison: Regional Liaisons are seasoned college faculty who are subject matter area experts and experienced credit for prior learning practitioners.

Effective Practices: Look for best practices in credit for prior learning and related programs and services that advance education attainment.

Postsecondary Pathways: Find initiatives and programs that expand pathways to postsecondary credentials through effective applications of credit for prior learning.

The CEAI Resource Center:  Staff in our CEAI Resource Center can answer your questions about ACE transcripts and credit recommendations for military and corporate training.

ACE CPL Stimulus Institutions:  CUP provided a stimulus to 12 institutions to implement or expand CPL programs.  Learn more about this initiative and details about specific programs implemented by these institutions.
