Alternative Credit Project (ACP)

The Alternative Credit Project™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that University of New England will accept towards your degree. 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 students finish what they started and receive a four-year degree, or a post-secondary certificate.

Even if you’re not ready to apply yet, UNE is here to help. We have admissions counselors who are happy to answer your questions. Contact us today at admissions@une.edu or find out more at http://www.une.edu/admissions/undergrad.
