Alternative Credit Project

ACE Alternative Credit ProjectCredit to Kickstart Your ACC Program

If you have stopped out of college, the Alternative Credit Project (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Arapahoe Community College (ACC) will accept towards your degree (with some restrictions). A national program of the American Council on Education, supported by a generous grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the ACP is designed to help adults finish what they started — a two- or four-year degree, or a post-secondary certificate.

Even if you’re not ready to apply yet, ACC is here to help you Move Mountains. We have admissions counselors, financial aid advisors, and academic advisors who specialize in helping students who have started careers or families to come back to school and finish their education.
