Earn College Credit for Your Prior Learning

Prior Learning Assessment

Diverse group of adult students

Credit to Kick Start Your MDC Program

The Alternative Credit Project™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Miami Dade College will accept towards your degree (up to 45 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, MDC is here to help; we have staff on hand who have experience in helping students with prior learning assessment credit.
