National College Credit Recommendation Service

Board of Regents  |  University of the State of New York

How do I find out which colleges are willing to consider awarding college credit for successful completion of learning experiences evaluated by NCCRS?

View a list of the names of cooperating colleges and universities. Inclusion on this list of cooperating colleges means that an institution has indicated a willingness to consider acceptance of transfer requests and may award the recommended credit. Requests for credit are typically evaluated on a case-by-case basis. As part of the decision-making process, college officials consider how the noncollegiate learning experiences might fit into individual students' degree programs. In some cases, transfer credit requests are accepted as electives.  

In addition to the colleges and universities on the list of cooperating colleges, there are many others that may consider awarding credit through an individualized portfolio assessment of prior learning. NCCRS credit recommendations may become part of such portfolios. If a college is not listed, you should contact the Registrar, the Admissions Office, or the chairperson of the degree program you wish to enroll in for specific information on their transfer policies.
