Catalog 2016-2017


Credit by Examination

NCTC awards credit on the basis of local and national examinations, prior military experience, and professional certifications, subject to general limitations. A maximum of 18 semester hours of credit earned by examination—College Board Advanced Placement Program (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Subject Examinations, USAFI, DANTES, NCTC departmental exams, and professional certifications—may be applied toward the award of a degree or certificate at NCTC.

Courses completed in the Armed Forces, USAFI and DANTES will be evaluated and credit will be awarded based on the recommendation in ACE (American Council on Education) Guide to Evaluation of Educational experiences in the Armed Services. See the institutional catalog for more in-depth information.
