Steps for Transfer Credit
Step One: Check out the CCRS Online Directory to determine if the organization who sponsored the course or program had the course evaluated for college credit recommendations through NCCRS. If you cannot find the organization in our directory, be sure to look under Former Members.
Please note: NCCRS cannot evaluate a course unless contracted to do so by the organization or entity sponsoring the course; NCCRS does not evaluate individual student transcripts for college credit equivalencies.
Step Two: Contact the registrar at the organization who sponsored the course or learning experience and obtain an official transcript and/or have an official transcript sent to the college or university of your choice. NCCRS does NOT issue transcripts.
Step Three: Upon application to a college/university, meet with an academic advisor and review your transcript. Ask about their PLA (prior learning assessment) process or policies. Tell them about the CCRS Online directory should they need detailed information about the course and credit recommendation.
Step Four: If you encounter problems obtaining credit, please submit a Request for Assistance Form, and NCCRS will advocate on your behalf.
