Aurora, Colo. (DATE) – Colorado State University Global (CSU Global) and ACI Learning have partnered to support learner and workforce needs by facilitating lifelong learning opportunities that lead to in-demand careers.
Through this partnership, students who earn an ACI Learning IT certificate have the opportunity to apply that experience toward undergraduate degree credits from CSU Global. As a result, the partnership will forge a new pathway for degree-seeking professionals that honors the work they have already done, making a bachelor’s degree more affordable and accessible.
“Colorado State University Global has been an integral partner to ACI Learning. The ability for ACI Learning students to transfer IT Certification courses as credit has been instrumental in increasing continuing education options, in addition to supporting the growth of CSU Global. It’s our pleasure to continue our partnership with Colorado State University Global while doing well by our students,” said Dr. David Duke, Chief Product Officer at ACI Learning.
“This partnership is a model for how universities can partner with industry training and professional development organizations to create opportunities that make earning a degree more accessible and affordable,” said CSU Global President Pamela Toney. “As an institution committed to providing the flexibility necessary for students to be successful in all aspects of their lives, CSU Global is proud to offer our career-relevant degree programs to students of ACI Learning. Together we are creating pathways to career success by making sure ACI Learning students receive credit for the learning they have already completed throughout their careers.”
