American Council on Education (ACE) College Credit Recommendation Service

Home / American Council on Education (ACE) College Credit Recommendation Service


A number of Graduate School USA's courses meet the academic standards set forth by the American Council on Education (ACE) and thus qualify individuals completing those courses to earn transfer academic credit at colleges and universities.

The American Council on Education’s College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for a number of Graduate School USA courses. The American Council on Education, the major coordinating body for all the nation's higher education institutions, seeks to provide leadership and a unifying voice on key higher education issues and to influence public policy through advocacy, research and program initiatives.

ACE CREDIT connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit at colleges and universities for formal courses and examinations taken in the workplace or other settings outside traditional higher education.

For more than 30 years, colleges and universities have trusted ACE CREDIT to provide reliable course equivalency information to facilitate their decisions to award academic credit. For more information, visit the ACE CEU CREDIT Transcript Service.

Graduate School USA chose the ACE College Credit Recommendation Service because they evaluate and make credit recommendations for formal educational programs and courses sponsored by noncollegiate organizations who are non-degree granting and who offer courses to their employees, members, or customers. These credit recommendations are intended to guide colleges and universities as they consider awarding credit to persons who have successfully completed noncollegiate-sponsored instruction.

All ACE-approved course designations are identified in the individual course descriptions listed in our catalogs and on our website. Graduate School USA students may view a list of our reviewed courses in the ACE National Guide.
