Transfer In

Don’t let your hard-earned credits go to waste! If you want to transfer from your current school or complete a degree that you started elsewhere, bring your credits to NCC. We’ll apply them to the program that’s right for you.

Transferring your credits from any regionally accredited* college or university is easy. After receiving an official transcript, we’ll transfer credits for classes that are equivalent and applicable to your NCC program and have a grade of C or better. We can transfer up to 45 of your credits toward any certificate, diploma or degree program.

If you’ve already earned a bachelor’s degree but are considering changing careers, enhancing your skill set or looking to complement your degree, you won’t have to repeat general education courses when you transfer to NCC.

To learn more about the process, contact our Admissions Team today!

*Credits from non-regionally accredited schools will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Check out the information below to see how your scores from AP and CLEP Exams can be applied towards your NCC degree or how an existing bachelor's degree or non-credit certification can translate into credits at NCC.
