American Council on Education (ACE) Credit Articulations

College Credit To Jump-Start Your DCCCD Program

Have you taken some college courses but haven't earned a degree or certificate yet?

The American Council on Education (ACE) has identified a pool of online courses (listed below) that the colleges of Dallas County Community College District will accept toward your degree. ACE transfer credit can be used for up to 75% of the credits required for a degree or certificate. By offering this alternative credit opportunity, the colleges of DCCCD hope to help adults finish what they started and get a degree or a post-secondary certificate.

Please Note:

  • All other ACE credit not listed on this page may be considered for transfer, but each request will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. Contact the Admissions/Registrar's Office for more information.
  • To receive the articulated credit, you must have completed the course(s) between 2015 and the present.
  • The list of accepted courses may change when courses change or when ACE recommends a change.

How To Request Credit

To request transfer credit for ACE courses, please complete the following steps:

  1. Request your ACE transcript online from the American Council on Education (ACE).
  2. Mail your transcript to the Admissions/Registrar's Office at your college of choice, or have it sent electronically directly to your preferred college.
