Completing your bachelor's degree has gotten a bit easier. The Alternative Credit Project™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that John F. Kennedy University will accept toward degree completion. A national program of the American Council on Education (ACE), supported by a grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the ACP is designed to help adults complete a bachelor's degree or undergraduate certificate.
The goal of the ACP is to encourage greater acceptance of students’ alternative credit and to create a more flexible pathway toward postsecondary education attainment for the more than 31 million nontraditional students who may have some college credit but no degree. The project aims to help students for whom the traditional higher education framework is not a feasible option—perhaps due to lifestyle concerns, financial restrictions, or time constraints—as well as students who are returning to school after an extended period away from the classroom.
You can take courses from external education providers and transfer the courses into a program at JFK University.
To register for one of the courses associated with the project, please visit the Alternative Credit Project website. After completion of an ACP course, please request an ACE transcript to be sent to JFK University.
To determine how these courses might fit into your program of study, please contact the Office of Admissions at 800.696.5358.
