Comptia exams no longer evaluated on ACE list?
#1
Hi all,

I ran into an issue recently where I wanted to take a comptia certification exam for college credit (excelsior), and wanted to refer to ACE site to see how many credits it recommends. It seems none of the COMPTIA exams are evaulated by ACE currently.

Reference url on ACE:  http://www2.acenet.edu/credit?fuseaction=browse.main

Has anyone ran into this recently, or has more info on it?

Thanks

I don't ever recall seeing CompTIA exams evaluated by ACE. I know some training companies have had their training for some CompTIA exams approved, but those are usually in person training courses.

That being said, some schools accept certification even though they're not ACE evaluated. WGU does, as does TESU. I believe Excelsior does as well, but k have no idea about COSC.

Some more info...

TESU only accepts Network+ and Security+
https://www2.tesu.edu/oapwl/company.php?...nt=CompTIA

Excelsior is a lot more generous (not just with CompTIA, but IT certs in general) - see CompTIA tab:
https://www.excelsior.edu/start-with-mor...fications/

WGU is likely going to be the most generous, depending on what specific IT degree you're looking for -- Find the degree transfer guides at the bottom of this page:
https://cm.wgu.edu/t5/Admission/Transfer...y/ta-p/155


I still couldn't find anything about COSC except they have a page explaining how to send CompTIA transcripts to them. That would suggest they accept them, but not sure how they get transcribed.

Hi, thanks for the reply. For some reason I remember COMPTIA was listed as an organization on the ACENET site last I checked earlier last year. Microsoft is still listed as an 'organization'.

Upon checking excelsior site, they accepted Security+ exam in these dates: 1/2009 to 5/2019 as per :  https://www.excelsior.edu/start-with-mor...fications/

Looks like I missed out on it, or someone hasn't evaluated the IT certs/Credits again in the new/recent timeframe...

I would contact them to see if they accept newer exams. It could just be out of date.

Thanks, it seems that the school site hasn't updated their list with valid dates yet.
