Credit for Previous Training

Applicable for Diploma Programs

A student applying for transfer credit in a diploma program must submit official transcripts from an accredited and approved institution to the College, including ACC transcripts, for review at least seven (7) days prior to the start of the program. Copies of course descriptions, college catalogs, and/or course syllabi will be required for evaluation purposes, unless the school is now closed. 

The Director of Education, in consultation with the Program Director, will evaluate previous education and training that may be applicable to the program offered at the College. Credit may be given if the education or training was completed at ACC or another institution accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (USDE) or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) where courses and credit values are comparable to those offered at American Career College and a letter grade of at least a C or numerical grade of at least 70 percent was achieved.

Only official transcripts will be accepted for transfer credit evaluation, and any coursework to be considered for credit must have been completed within five years of the program start date or re-entry date, including coursework completed at ACC.

If official transcripts are not received at least seven (7) days prior to beginning the program, credit will not be awarded for prior coursework. For accepted coursework or training, the student may be required to demonstrate competency in those courses.

The College will conduct an evaluation of previous education and training for all Veterans and eligible persons, grant appropriate credit, shorten the training period proportionately, and notify the Veterans Administration and student accordingly.

Transfer credits are not used in determining grade point averages (GPAs). Credits or clock hours associated with credit for previous training will be counted towards maximum time frame. Recognition of credits earned at another postsecondary institution is limited to no more than 50 percent of the total credits required for completion of a designated program.
