National College Credit Recommendation Service

Board of Regents  |  University of the State of New York

How do learning experiences receive college credit recommendations from NCCRS?

NCCRS staff plans an academic evaluation with the organization and assembles a team of evaluators (three college faculty who teach similar courses). During the review, the evaluation team, supervised by an NCCRS staff member, reviews text books, syllabi, graded exams, homework assignments, grade rosters, student evaluation forms, and other appropriate instructional/programmatic materials that illuminate the scope of the learning experiences. The evaluation team determines if the learning experiences are comparable to similar college level courses and, if so, they make recommendations about the amount of credit that would be appropriate for a college to award as transfer credit.
