Why Accreditation is Important
Credits earned will transfer to a number of universities.
Accreditation creates a set of quality standards for all education institutions or programs, provides access to federal and state funding, maintains private sector confidence, and makes transferring credits easier. Accreditation ensures that the course of study and the degree a student earns will be recognized as an achievement bestowed on the student from a quality institution.
All exams on the Total Testing platform are NCCRS Accredited. Since 1973, NCCRS (National College Credit Recommendation Service, formerly National PONSI) has evaluated training and education programs offered outside the traditional college classroom setting and translating them into college credit equivalencies. Over 1,500 cooperating colleges and universities work with NCCRS granting college credit based on NCCRS credit recommendations and in accordance with their own transfer policies.
