Credit to Kickstart Your Goodwin Program

The Alternative Credit Project™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Goodwin College will accept towards your degree (up to 90 ACP credits). A national program of the American Council on Education, supported by a generous grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the ACP is designed to help adults finish what they started—a two- or four-year degree, or a post-secondary certificate.

Even if you’re not ready to apply yet, Goodwin is here to help. We have admissions counselors, financial aid advisors, and academic advisors who specialize in helping students who have started careers or families to come back to school and finish their education.

At this time, Goodwin College will only accept ACP credit that was earned prior to admission to Goodwin College. Matriculated students may not participate in this program.

Transfer Policies at Goodwin College

At Goodwin, most of your previous collegiate-level coursework taken at accredited colleges and univieristies will not expire. Coures are transferable to Goodwin College as long as they meet the following criteria:

  1. Coursework was taken at accredited, collegiate, degree-granting institutions
  2. Coursework has a recorded student grade of "C" or higher, (the student must consult program requirements to see if a higher grade is needed for certain courses), and
  3. is directly applicable to the Goodwin College Curriculum

Students may use collegiate transfer credit (credit earned at an accredited collegiate institution) to satisfy up to 75% of their chosen degree.

ACE Alternative Credit Coursework is considered experiential learning credit and will transfer as Experiential Credit (EC). Experiential Credit can be used to satisfy up to 50% of a student’s chosen degree (i.e., up to 30 credits for an associate degree and up to 60 credits for a bachelor’s degree).
