Upon successful completion of an online course, you will have an option to receive transferable credit recommendations:
- Resource Development: Fundraising & Grant Writing: 3 lower-division baccalaureate/associate degree semester hours in fundraising and grant writing.
- Volunteer Mobilization: 3 lower-division baccalaureate/associate degree semester hours in interpersonal communications or personnel management.
The credits for each course are equivalent to what you would receive for a semester-long class. Credit recommendations are administered through the American Council on Education (ACE).
After the course ends and you receive a passing grade, you’ll receive instructions on setting up an account with ACE. It costs $20 to create an ACE account and registration includes a copy of your transcript ($15 for each additional transcript) showing your credit recommendation. You can then send your transcript to the college or university where you are pursuing study. If you plan to take both available, you should request credits after passing both courses so you only have to pay the $20 fee once.
A listing of schools known to accept credit recommendations from ACE is online. If your school is not on this list, it does not mean the school will not accept the credit recommendations and it’s best to check with the school directly to find out whether the credits will be accepted.
Please note that college credit recommendations are not currently available for the Poverty In Your Community or Community Engagement courses.
