Earning College Credit with a Microsoft Certification

I wanted to remind everyone that both students and Microsoft Certified Professionals (MCPs) are eligible to earn college credit with a Microsoft Certification. In short, approved certifications can be applied for up to six semester hours of college credit in either a bachelor’s-degree or associate-degree of computer applications, information technology, or computer information systems. There are no caveats to this. In order for you to qualify for the credit(s), you must have passed a select Microsoft Certification within the last three years.

The American Council on Education (ACE) is the governing body that has made this possible. One exciting thingabout this is that they maintain a network of more than 1,500 cooperating, accredited colleges and universities! This list consists of all accredited colleges and universities that have agreed to consider ACE college-credit.

The following are Microsoft Certifications and exams that ACE recommends for college credit:

Microsoft Office Specialist (MOS) certifications

IT professional and developer certifications

Frequently asked questions are obtainable here:

Q. Will my school recognize the ACE credit recommendation?
