Credit to Kickstart Your Cardinal Stritch University Program

If you have stopped out of college, the Alternative Credit Project™ (ACP) provides a pool of online courses that Cardinal Stritch University (Stritch) will accept towards your degree (up to 60 ACP credits).  A national program of the American Council on Education (ACE), 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, Stritch 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 come back to school and finish their education.
