Excelsior? What is ACE credits and is 7 still the limit?

  1. 0 I'm a LPN I will be doing Excelsiors Lpn-rn program. Does Ace have to do with clep? I have NO prereqs. If there is some sort of limitation on where/how to obtain prereqs which in your opinion should I focus on as far as ACE since it seemed to be something good. I'm using a combo of Clep, Dantes, Aleks? Penn Foster and ECE. If you know a better route for any such as Straighterline for certain creds please let me know!This is my plan:*Humanities (6 credits needed) -Analyzing & Interpreting Lit (6 credits, CLEP)*Natural Sciences (? needed) -A&P (6 credits, ECE) -Micro (3 credits, ECE) -Beginning Algebra (3 credits, ALEKS)*Social Science (6 credits needed) -Human G&D (3 credits, CLEP) -Lifespan Developmental Psych (3 credits DSST)*Info Literature (1 credit needed) -English 1?? (2 credit, Penn Foster)Please help I don't want to waste time doing something that won't be accepted. Thanks so much!

    Penn Foster cannot be used for info lit. CLEP does not count as ACE credits. PennFoster was pending ACE approval earlier this year. Straighterline is ACE credits. Only a percentage of your credits can be ACE. Check with academic advising as pre-approval is needed for all credits to be accepted.

    Wow thanks so much. I'm relieved that ace doesn't refer to clep! Thanks for also letting me know about the Info lit and Penn Foster as well .

    Life Span Developmental Psych and Human Growth & Development are interchangable - they are the same course - EC will not give you credit for both. You might try UeXcel for English.
