About National College Credit Recommendation Service

Established in 1973 by the Board of Regents of the University of the State of New York, the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS), located in Albany, New York, is an organization that evaluates and establishes college credit recommendations for courses offered by government, industry, and other noncollegiate sponsors. NCCRS collaborates with more than 1,500 organizations and institutions of higher education across the United States and beyond.


NCCRS member organizations include state government agencies, apprenticeship sponsors, corporations, and community and faith-based organizations. A few long-standing members include the New York City Police Department (NYPD), the Fire Department of the City of New York (FDNY), Consolidated Edison, and Northwell Health Emergency Medical Institute.


Since its inception, NCCRS has evaluated and recommended college credit for more than 5,200 courses, exams, and educational programs enabling individuals to gain access to college credit for successful completion of qualified learning. UoPeople's educational partnership with NCCRS extends beyond the acceptance of NCCRS recommended credit evaluations. With our partnership, NCCRS member organizations and organizations who have had NCCRS evaluate training or courses for college credit are included in the educational partnership with UoPeople.
