Experiential Learning and Credit Transfer


Students who have attended an accredited college or postsecondary educational institution receiving a C or higher may apply for transfer of credit. Official transcripts and documentation of course work such as course descriptions or outlines must be provided to Alaska Career College for evaluation prior to acceptance for enrollment. It must also be determined that the coursework fulfills the specific ACC course requirements. Students may be required to test out of courses under consideration. Transferred credits will not be considered in computing grade point averages but may be applied toward requirements for program completion.

Generally, Alaska Career College does not grant credits for prior experiential learning. Where a particular licensing agency requires the granting of credit for experience as determined by written and/or practical examination, Alaska Career College will comply with such regulations. To earn an Alaska Career College credential, at a minimum, 75% of the required curriculum must be completed at Alaska Career College.
