Put Your ACE Credits to Work for You
Did you know we design our programs with stackability in mind? If you have completed ACE credits, you can apply them to other programs. This makes continuing your education easier and more time-efficient at ACE. You can apply your credits regardless of when they were taken if the following applies:
- The course you have taken is the same or equivalent to the potential course.
- The course is not on the 5-year or 7-year Internal Transfer list. The courses on these tables must be retaken if over the time limit due to substantial content updates.
- The course is the same or an equivalent number of credits.
The best news is that ACE will automatically apply credits that meet the above criteria when you return to ACE. If you have questions about this process or would like to request an evaluation of your past ACE courses, please contact [email protected] for a program map.
