Credit for Prior Learning

Industry Training

MCC follows the American Council on Education (ACE) guidelines in awarding credit for industry credentials. Enrolled students who can document completion of an approved industrial/corporate training program, may request credit by certification. Visit the ACE website to see what is available. Credit by certification may only be requested and awarded after successful completion of fifteen credit hours at MCC. To request credit by certification, contact the campus enrollment manager. There is no charge for credit by certification.

Enrolled students who have current industry credentials that are not addressed by the ACE guides may also request credit by certification. Credit may only be requested and awarded after successful completion of fifteen credit hours at MCC. You will need to supply documentation of any valid industry certifications awarded, and time limits may apply for certain programs.

Determination of equivalent MCC course credit will be at the discretion of MCC subject matter experts and the Dean of Instruction. To request credit, contact the campus Dean of Instruction.

There are several industry credentials that already have approved MCC equivalents. Click here for a current list.
