ACE Credits The American Council on Education (ACE) is a coordinating organization helping institutions and organizations advance the higher education system. The organization ultimately helps individuals by evaluating and recommending institutional, and some non-traditional education and training, allowing accredited educational bodies to accept credit recommendations. At AIU, we use ACE recommendations to award transfer credit for your eligible experience and training. At AIU, your Admissions Advisor can assist you with the details of acceptance into the University and your Prior Learning Assessment Evaluator can help prepare your individual degree plan. Prepare for your conversation with a Prior Learning Assessment Evaluator by gathering your transcript information from the sources listed above.
