Lewis University awards credit for military training and other non-college sponsored learning activities according to current recommendations of the American Council of Education (ACE). College credits may be awarded for work-related training, professional certifications and licensure earned by the student if the organization providing the training program is recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE) and the appropriate Lewis University academic department determines that the certification/license is college equivalent learning. The University accepts military training and other ACE evaluated credit in accord with the ACE guidelines. Students in nursing and aviation may also receive credit for the learning defined by their license. Faculty in Nursing and Aviation will determine the credit equivalencies of students' prior training.
Credits awarded for corporate experience or military training is noted on the student's transcript. Grades and quality points are not given for these credits. These credits do not apply toward the residency or entrance requirements for SPCE programs, and quality points do not apply toward the Lewis GPA. ACE transcripts submitted at entry to the university are posted without charge.
