Organizational Eligibility

  1. Organizations who offer formal training and are not empowered to grant regionally accredited degrees may be eligible to have courses evaluated by NCCRS. Such organizations may include businesses, professional and trade associations, voluntary associations, instructional vendors, labor unions, government agencies, hospitals, private schools, religious organizations, or cultural institutions.
  2. Organizations may develop their own courses or purchase them from an instructional vendor. In either case, however, sponsoring organizations must demonstrate administrative control over the courses, meaning that the organization has final say over course content and maintains official records on students' attendance and performance.
  3. Organizations must ensure that official student records have been securely stored for at least the period covered by the credit recommendations and must also show capability to retrieve student records and send transcripts to colleges when requested.
