The American Council on Education (ACE) evaluates all CDSE Education courses for credit recommendations. The ACE College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT) connects CDSE workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping employees gain access to academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken outside traditional degree programs. ACE Credit recommendations allow students to transfer credit earned from approved courses toward completion of degree programs. CDSE course credit recommendations are listed in the ACE National Guide
ACE has partnered with Credly to allow students to send official academic transcripts directly to an employer or college they want to attend. However, before you can send a transcript, you must first accept your ACE Digital Badges. To request a CDSE ACE Digital Badge, follow the guidance at the CDSE My Digital Badges
webpage. Once you have accepted a digital badge and set up your profile, you will be able to send an official transcript directly from the Credly webpage to the institution of your choice. For instructions on how to send a transcript, please follow the guidance at the My Transcripts
webpage for more information.
