What is the Process for Transferring our InstantCREDIT Courses to UMGC?

As with all other ACE-reviewed courses, the first step is to create an account on the ACE Credit website. Then, as you complete each course with InstantCert, you request to have that course added to your ACE transcript. When you have completed all of the courses you plan to take, you then request that your ACE transcript be sent to University of Maryland Global Campus.
