4 Credit Courses
If your school offers 4 credits for the Calculus course or the Astronomy course, we offer students the option to get 4 credits and an academic transcript from the American Council on Education (ACE).
ACE helps students gain academic credit for courses taken outside of the traditional degree programs. Thousands of colleges across the nation consider ACE credit recommendations in determining transfer course equivalencies to their institutions.
It is important to note that you can always request the transcript from the University of Pittsburgh upon successful completion of your course.
