Helping Nontraditional Learners Gain College Degrees and Credentials
October 21, 2015 / edX team
Today, we are proud to announce our participation in the ACE (American Council on Education) Alternative Credit Project™, an initiative to help millions of nontraditional learners gain a college degree.
ACE, the major coordinating body for all the nation’s higher education institutions, has selected three Boston University math MOOCs on edX as part of the initiative. Learners can take the selected courses, receive a verified certificate and then apply to receive credit at an ACE partner school.
Read on for more information about the program and the credit process.
This collaboration between ACE, Boston University and edX on credit opportunities is another step in our mission to increase access to high-quality education for anyone, anywhere.
Like the Global Freshman Academy and MIT’s MicroMaster’s, we are honored to work with our partners to develop new, innovative paths to college credit and other credentialing and to open up increased access to quality higher education for learners around the world.
We look forward to bringing you more news on additional credit initiatives and alternative pathways into higher education in the coming months.
