ACE: College Credit for FAA Training

College Credit for FAA Academy, and Security & Hazmat Training Courses

The American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (ACE CREDIT) has evaluated and recommended college credit for over 500 FAA courses. For more information about ACE CREDIT and ACE Transcript Service, visit ACE CREDIT's website at

FAA courses that have been evaluated and recommended for college credit are listed in two locations:

To obtain an ACE transcript of FAA training courses recommended for college credit, you must join the ACE Transcript Service. (See option 1 below.) You also have the option of working directly with your school of choice. (See option 2 below.)

IMPORTANT NOTE:  The individual college or university makes the final determination concerning the transferability of educational credits for all courses.  The amount of credit granted will depend on an institution's degree requirements and general policy on granting credit for college-level learning gained outside that institution.

OPTION 1: To join the ACE Transcript Service, YOU must complete the process below to establish a new record with ACE and to add courses to an existing ACE record:

REGISTER YOUR COMPLETED COURSES ONLINE (to start a new ACE record and to update an existing record). (Use the ACE online registration process.)

NOTE: You no longer need to contact your regional Training Program Manager. Once you have completed your registration with ACE, your information will be forwarded to the Academy or CMEL for approval.

ACE online National Guide to College Credit for Workforce Training:

A one-time $40 registration fee (money order or credit card) is required. The $40 fee, which is subject to change, includes your first transcript. For an additional $15 (money order or credit card) per transcript, the ACE Transcript Service will send an official transcript to the college or university of your choice. (The final determination of credit conversion is the option of the individual university.) Order additional transcripts at ACE website:

NOTE: ACE requires payment by credit card or money order (no personal checks).  For credit card charges (VISA, MasterCard, American Express), please include the full name of the account holder, account number, expiration date, billing address, amount to be charged, and signature of account holder.    

OPTION 2: You may choose to work directly with the registrar of the school of choice instead of joining the ACE Transcript Service.

NOTE: OPTION 1, joining the ACE Transcript Service, is generally more effective because ACE sends a transcript in a format that is easy to use and familiar to registrars. In addition, if difficulty is encountered in any of the recommendations being accepted by a school, ACE will contact the school and attempt to work with the registrar on your behalf.
