National College Credit Recommendation Service

Board of Regents  |  University of the State of New York

How do I choose a college to enroll in?

Certainly, your college choice depends in part on what degree program you are interested in pursuing and whether a particular college offers that degree program. Other considerations might be  the costs of attending and whether the college offers part-time degree studies, evening courses, minimal or no residency requirements, special academic counseling and information services, and awarding credit for previous learning off-campus, including learning experiences recommended for credit by NCCRS. For information on colleges willing to consider awarding credit based on NCCRS credit recommendations, see our list of cooperating colleges.
