ACE - Alternative Credit Project ™

If you have stopped out of college, the Alternative Credit Project™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Lakeland University will accept towards your degree (up to 30 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, Lakeland is here to help. We have admissions counselors, financial aid advisors, and academic advisors who specialize in helping students who have started careers or families to come back to school and finish their education.

Lakeland University Admission Overview

We would love to have you join our community. Applying for admission as a transfer student is relatively easy–there's detailed information within the Admissions section of this site. If you attended Lakeland University before, you may have a shorter path to readmission. Check out readmission details for former Lakeland students.

We admit transfer students in both fall and spring semesters. Most students will need to complete an application and supply transcripts for all prior college-level work.

IMPORTANT: You may request your ACP transcript directly from the American Council on Education (ACE).
