Alternative Credit Project (ACP)

College credit to go back to college

A national program of the American Council on Education to help adults finish their degree

Alternative Credit Project logoIf you have stopped out of college, the Alternative Credit ProjectTM (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Franklin Pierce University (FPU) 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, FPU is here to help. Our enrollment management counselors are knowledgeable in admissions, financial aid, and academic programs, and specialize in helping students who have started careers or families to come back to school and finish their education.
