    Default Something I Noticed

    On the NCCRS website, Study.com's Classroom Management is listed as Upper Level credit. There are also a few other differences between ACE and NCCRS as far as Study.com goes. There could potentiality be a few more UL credits if you go by NCCRS.

    Wow, I had no idea Study.com had NCCRS approval, I thought it was just ACE. Seems unnecessary to have both, but perhaps helpful in situations like these that you found.

    Yes, I definitely don't understand why they have both. Unless it is maybe more for advertising? I have a feeling Excelsior will go by ACE recommendations. But there are a lot of other NCCRS cooperating colleges & universities, maybe they will take the upper level credit. I also noticed they had some classes as 1 credit, ACE has them all at 3.

    I think most schools have their own equivalency lists and don't care what ACE or NCCRS says about UL/LL recommendations, however, NCCRS is usually *free* to transfer to your school, since there's no central clearinghouse, so you can save a little money by using it instead of paying for an ACE transcript.

    Excelsior says they will go directly from what ACE/ NCCRS give as credit recommendations (effective September 1, 2016), so this might be a good source for some upper levels at Excelsior.

    I am still confused about this though:
    Credit recommendation: In the lower division baccalaureate/associate degree category or upper division baccalaureate degree category, 3 semester hours in Introduction to International Business (10/16).

    Why not just make it upper level?

    There is also something that says "associate/certificate" instead of "baccalaureate/associate degree category." Not sure if associate/certificate credits can be used for bachelor degrees.

    To me that sounds like "freshman level only," but to each university its own.

    The list seems to be growing. Last time I looked there were only business courses approved. Maybe we'll see some new ones soon, that are not yet approved by either ACE or NCCRS. I like the option to have a score report sent to TESU instead of using ACE as I like to send transcripts as I finish a course and that can get a little pricey with ACE.

    Hey everyone-

    We currently have 16 business courses recommended for credit by NCCRS and are working to provide more in the near future. We wanted to give students more options and access to a larger network of schools! If anyone has questions about confusing recommendations, we are happy to work with you to resolve them .
