American Council on Education (ACE)

The American Council on Education (ACE) publishes recommendations on the amount, type, and level of transfer credit that a university should consider when evaluating an individual's military or civilian training and experience. 

ACE evaluates each version of a class and/or school and recommendations may vary from year to year. Please select Military Guide or National Guide below to determine if a course you’ve completed has been recommended for College Credit by ACE. Note: You must have completed the course within the specified Start and End Dates in order to receive the credit.
