The American Council on Education's College Credit Recommendation Service (CREDIT®) connects workplace learning with colleges and universities by helping adults gain access to academic credit for formal courses and examinations taken outside the traditional classroom.
- Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) exam - 10 semester hours
- Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC) exam - 8 semester hours
- Payroll 101: The Foundations of Payroll Certificate Program - 3 semester hours
- Payroll 201: The Payroll Administration Certificate Program - 4 semester hours
- Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) Boot Camp - 3 semester hours
- Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC) Boot Camp - 3 semester hours
For certificants who pass the FPC or CPP exam, ACE's college credit endorsement will be validated directly on their FPC or CPP digital badge. Via the FPC or CPP badge, certificants will be able to obtain a transcript designed to help colleges grant transfer credit.
Students who complete APA's courses listed above, must submit this request form to have an ACE college credit badge issued to them for the APA courses they have completed.
The collaboration makes it easier for working professionals to request academic credit for workplace training and to share evidence of their achievements online.
The subject areas and the amount of credit that you are eligible to earn are based upon the year in which you obtained your original certification.
