About Outlier's Course Credits

Outlier's highly transferrable courses are made possible through our partnership with the University of Pittsburgh and Golden Gate University. 

Where Do Outlier’s Credits Come From?

For Individual Courses: When you successfully complete an individual Outlier course, you receive 3 college semester credits as well as an official transcript from the University of Pittsburgh. These credits are transferrable to other colleges and universities, subject to review and approval by the receiving institution.

For Degrees+ Courses: Credits obtained as part of a Degrees+ Associate degree are transcripted through Golden Gate University.

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.

Visit this article to learn more about our ACE credit courses.

It is important to note that you can always request the transcript from the University of Pittsburgh upon successful completion of your course.
