Torah Accreditation Liaison (TAL)
Torah Accreditation Liaison, an NCCRS member since May 2005, was established in 2004 to provide opportunities for interested individuals to demonstrate their Judaic knowledge on proficiency examinations that measure college comparable coursework as confirmed through an assessment by NCCRS. Most institutions that provide such instruction with post high school Jewish scholarship focus solely on developing a high level of and appreciation for the wisdom and philosophy embodied in traditional Jewish scholarship and are not geared toward awarding secular degrees, although instruction at these institutions may be comparable to college-level coursework. Torah Accreditation Liaison provides a means for the students of such institutions and others who have acquired similar prior learning to demonstrate their mastery and document for the colleges and universities, where they may wish to pursue a college degree, that they have achieved college-level knowledge.
Students and admissions representatives please note: NCCRS does not provide transcripts. Transcript requests and inquiries should be directed to the organization offering the courses, examinations or apprenticeship.
