Norwalk Community College recognizes there are many ways to learn, for example: self-study, on the job courses, military instruction, reading and/or travel. NCC wishes to award you credit, or advanced placement, for what you already know. The following identifies eight ways we are prepared to award you college credit for what you have already learned:
Transfer college credits earned at college outside the USA to your NCC records by clearing them through the World Education Service www.wes.org/icap
Transfer credits for courses you took in the military
Demonstrate mastery of a subject by passing a CLEP (College Level Exam Program) Test http://clep.collegeboard.org
Credits awarded for AP (Advancement Placement) Exams
Meet with the appropriate NCC Department Chair or Coordinator for courses for which there is no corresponding CLEP or AP tests
Ask if a professional credential you have earned is eligible for college credits
For more information about any of the above please go to the NCC website and look under Student Services, Department of Counseling, or call the Counseling Department at (203) 857 -7033 to schedule a meeting with a counselor who will guide you through the process.
