Can I get college credit for my Microsoft Office Specialist certifications?

Q. Can I get college credit for my Microsoft Office Specialist certifications?

A. That depends upon the institution. The first step is to have your certifications validated by the American Council on Edu­­cation (ACE). Visit http:// ACEnet.edu and submit your credentials for course review. ACE provides course equivalency for the exam you passed.

You will likely need to log into Certi­­port for your MOS certification numbers and exam numbers. These are entered into ACE’s website and evaluated separately. You will receive an email back after a few days for each certification; not all exams will necessarily qualify for credit.
