Credit to Kickstart Your Education
If you have stopped out of college, the Alternative Credit Project (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Front Range Community College (FRCC) will accept towards your degree (up to 75% of credits required for a degree or certificate). 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, we are 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. Contact us today
for more information or to get a tour of our campuses.

How to Apply to FRCC
With your eligible ACP credits you can apply to FRCC as a transfer student. We'll need your application, transfer request, and official transcripts. You can request your ACP transcript online from the American Council on Education (ACE). Then we’ll email you a Transfer Credit Evaluation that will tell you what will (and what won’t) transfer into FRCC.
Once you have your evaluation, it’s a good idea to meet with your academic advisor to figure out how your transfer credits factor into your program and plans.
