Lexia and the American College of Education are making it possible.
Lexia® is excited to partner with the American College of Education (ACE). This partnership gives you the opportunity to register with ACE to earn graduate or transcript credit for LETRS® (Language Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling) and LETRS® for Early Childhood Educators courses of study. LETRS and LETRS for Early Childhood Educators provide educators with deep knowledge to be literacy and language experts in the science of reading. The courses offer educators the background, depth of knowledge, and tools to teach literacy and language skills and apply the science of reading research into instructional practice.
ACE is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission, the same body that accredits many of the nation’s oldest and largest colleges and universities.
Named No. 2 on Newsweek's list of America's Top Online Colleges 2023, ACE offers practical degrees for a real-life budget (about 85% of students are able to pay per class).
Lexia has partnered with ACE to give LETRS participants the opportunity to have LETRS or LETRS for Early Childhood Educators coursework applied as credit toward a master's or other graduate degree from ACE.
To be eligible for graduate credits from ACE, LETRS completers must have received a minimum score of 80% on applicable coursework completion, verified by Lexia, within two years from date of application. ACE also provides transcript evaluation and issuance for applicable coursework completion for a fee of $100.
Lexia does not provide post-secondary credits, continuing education units (CEUs), or other credits to participants as part of Lexia services. However, Lexia will provide participants who have completed and achieved minimum required scores in the LETRS and LETRS for Early Childhood Educators courses of study the option to individually and separately register with a U.S. accredited institution with which Lexia has partnered (ACE); each participant can elect to have their LETRS coursework and score applied as credit toward a master's or other college degree from ACE or to receive their LETRS coursework transcribed for transferrable graduate credits. Individual participants electing to pursue this option are responsible for registering, accepting any additional ACE program terms, and paying any associated fees to ACE as required.
