If you have stopped out of college, the Alternative Credit Project™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that National Louis University (NLU) will accept towards your degree. A national program of the American Council on Education (ACE), 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.

At National Louis University (NLU) students with demanding jobs, family and full-time responsibilities are the rule, not the exception. NLU is here to support students who have started careers or families to come back to school and finish their education. Distinctive in design and delivery, our programs are created to fit your busy schedule.

Take advantage of the wide range of ACE Alternative Credit Project™ courses.
NLU will accept up to 60 quarter hours (or 45 semester hours) of ACE ACP credit. Click here for the list of courses we accept.
