NCC will consider transferring credits for previous training obtained from other institutions accredited by an agency recognized by the United States Department of Education (ED) or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA). NCC will also consider awarding credit for professional learning reviewed by the American Council for Education (ACE) and determined to be college level. NCC does not offer credit for advanced placement examinations or experiential learning. Credit for previous training is granted at the discretion of a designated school representative and such decisions are considered final at the time of admission. All decisions will be made within fourteen (14) calendar days of receipt of the application and all supporting documentation. If credit is granted, the length and cost of the program may be reduced proportionately, depending on the circumstances. Credits approved for transfer will not be included in the student’s calculation for grade point average and will be recorded as a grade of “TC” on the student’s official transcript. The evaluation of previous postsecondary education and training is mandatory/required for VA beneficiaries. For students utilizing Veterans benefits who are approved for transfer credit as a result of this evaluation, the institution will grant appropriate credit, reduce the program length proportionately, notify the student and Veterans Affairs in writing of this decision, and adjust invoicing of the VA accordingly. 8 Northwest Career College, Effective – 03/26/2018
