Insurance Broker, Cosmetologist, Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) and

variety of topics, often for little to no cost to the learner. MOOCs may

help students earn college credit. For MOOCs with college credit
recommendations from the
American Council on Education (ACE) and National College Credit
Recommendation Service (NCCRS), you should submit an official ACE or
transcript of completed MOOCs. MOOCs without ACE or NCCRS credit
recommendations may also be submitted for assessment.
