Alternative Credit Projects

American Council on Education

Alternative Credit Project™ encourages greater acceptance of students’ alternative credit and create a more flexible pathway towards post-secondary education attainment. As of August, 2015, 37 colleges/universities and three systems agreed, up-front, to accept ACE CREDIT recommended courses from non-accredited providers in this project for transfer credit. Institutions agree to provide anonymized data to ACE regarding amount of credit their institution accepts through the Alternative Credit Project (ACPE), as well as persistence and success rates of students transferring in courses from this project. ACE will track number of ACPE courses a student requests through an ACE transcript, receive data from receiving institution about credit acceptance, and student retention, persistence, and success at the institution.
