The American Council on Education (ACE) received a grant from the Gates Foundation in 2014 to create a national alternative credit ecosystem—the Alternative Credit Project™—to encourage greater acceptance of alternative credit and a more flexible pathway towards postsecondary education attainment for students who may have some college credit but no degree.
If your institution can commit to accept a large number of the courses from this project for transfer credit based upon ACE’s credit recommendations and agree to visibly communicate acceptance of those courses to potential students, you can apply to join the Alternative Credit Project™ ecosystem and be listed on the project website as a participating institution.
