Prior Learning Assessment

Diverse group of adult students

Credit to Kick Start Your MDC Program

The American Council on Education (ACE) has evaluated a pool of courses offered by various online providers that Miami Dade College will accept towards your degree (up to 45 credits). The online classes are designed to help students to finish what they started — a two- or four-year degree, or a post-secondary certificate.

Even if you're not ready to apply yet, MDC is here to help. We have staff on hand who have experience in helping students with prior learning assessment credit.
