American Council on Education Recommends Courses for College Credit



ACE CREDIT® evaluated and recommends JumpCourses for college credit.

JumpCourse believes in greater access to higher quality education. By expanding educational opportunities, we are adapting to the changing needs of college students. We are proud to announce that the American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT®) evaluated and recommends college credit for courses developed by JumpCourse. It is our mission to help students achieve their academic goals affordably and effectively, paving a road to graduation that will allow students to begin planning for their future.  

What is ACE?

Founded in 1918, ACE (the American Council on Education) is the major coordinating body for all the nation's higher education institutions, representing more than 1,600 college and university presidents, and more than 200 related associations nationwide.  It provides leadership on key higher education issues and influences public policy through advocacy.

ACE CREDIT connects non-traditional learning with colleges and universities by helping students gain access to academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken in settings outside traditional higher education.  ACE represents a base of more than 2,000 degree-granting institutions including two- and four-year colleges, private and public universities, and nonprofit and for-profit entities.


Earning Credit via ACE

You can earn an ACE CREDIT college credit recommendation by signing up for an eligible course on JumpCourse, and then taking our online proctored final exam at the end of the course (the exam cost is included in the cost of the ACE-specific course).  Be sure to check-in with your school's registrar or college advisor to let them know you would like to transfer your JumpCourse for credit, or contact us at to answer any questions. You may visit our FAQ page to learn more about the final exam. 

Students who meet all requirements and successfully complete one of our courses may request a transcript. They can then present their transcript to the college or university of their choice for prerequisite or undergraduate credit consideration to be granted at the discretion of the institution.

All you need is an internet connection and a positive mental attitude to earn college credits on your own schedule!
