Alternative Credit Project Unveiled by American Council on Education

Pleasant Hill, CA —John F. Kennedy University announced that it is one of 40 institutions participating in the Alternative Credit Project,™ a groundbreaking initiative lead by the American Council on Education (ACE) to boost the ability of millions of nontraditional learners to gain a college degree. 

The ACE project, made possible by a $1.89 million grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, has unveiled over 110 low- or no-cost, lower-division general education online courses for which JFK University and other participating colleges will grant credit.  The courses cover a range of studies including business, critical thinking and writing, foreign language, humanities, mathematics, and l sciences.

“We are very excited to be among the select group of institutions participating in this innovative project,” said JFK University President Debra Bean. “JFK University was founded to meet the needs of the nontraditional learners – for those individuals looking to continue their education while balancing work and family.  This project enables us to enhance the opportunities we offer prospective students to obtain an affordable, high quality education.”

“This is an important step for an initiative that already has significantly increased our body of knowledge about the most effective ways to increase the number of Americans able to earn a college degree or credential by using education, training, and life experiences gained outside a formal classroom,” said ACE President Molly Corbett Broad.
