Alternative Credit

College Credit to Jumpstart Your OJC Program

Alternative Credit Project

Have you taken some college courses but haven't earned a degree or certificate yet? The Alternative Credit Project​™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Otero Junior College will accept towards your degree (up to 75% of the credits required for a degree or certificate). 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; get a degree, or a post-secondary certificate.

 
  • About the Alternative Credit Project​™​​

    American Council on Education (ACE)

    ACE has engaged 40 colleges and universities and three systems with a strong commitment to access and attainment in this alternative credit consortium. Several of these institutions helped to identify high-demand lower division general education subject areas, agreed-upon quality course and provider criteria and identified high-quality online education providers across the selected subject areas.

    Selected courses have undergone ACE’s credit recommendation process throughout spring 2015 ​which will lead to a pool of about 100 low-cost or no-cost online courses. Participating institutions agree to accept a large number of these courses and visibly communicate their acceptance of the courses to students. Institutions also agree to provide anonymized data to ACE regarding the amount of credit their institution accepts through this project as well as retention and attainment rates of students transferring in courses from this project.

    American Council on Education (ACE) is engaged in an Alternative Credit Project​™​​ to encourage greater acceptance of students’ alternative credit and create a more flexible pathway towards post-secondary education attainment for the more than 32 million non-traditional students who may have some college credit but no degree.
