How do I earn college credit for my NCTI courses?

In January 1998, NCTI and ACC entered into a partnership that allows broadband cable industry employees to receive college credits for NCTI courses. When you complete an accredited NCTI course, you automatically earn credit at ACC. If you completed an approved NCTI course before 1998, your previous credit is also transferred to ACC upon completion of a new course. Check the table below or visit the Certificates & Degrees section to see which NCTI courses are approved for college credit. Any required course for any degree or certificate will earn college credit.

Can I transfer my NCTI courses to another institution?

Yes, in most cases, you can transfer your NCTI/ACC courses from ACC to another institution. However, accepted courses and credit grants are ultimately decided by the receiving school. Most colleges and universities will acknowledge NCTI/ACC credits because of their full accreditation. NCTI strongly recommends you read the transfer policies and procedures for any institution that you are involving in the transfer of college credits, including Arapahoe Community College. Each college has different transfer guidelines, and it is each student's responsibility to understand and follow them. To transfer your courses to another institution, you will need to obtain an official transcript from ACC by completing an ACC transcript request form or online through ACC's Website.

Where do I get my transcript?

Follow these steps to obtain your official transcript or to send your transcript elsewhere (eg. if you are transferring your NCTI course credits to another college):

  • Enter your S#: (your 9-digit, ACC-appointed user ID) and your password (your six-digit date of birth (MMDDYY) (unless you have previously changed it). ** Please note: Your "S" number IS NOT YOUR SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER. If you do not know your "S" number please call the Admissions & Records Office at: 303-797-5621
  • Select “Student Menu”, then “Student Records Menu”, and, “Official Transcript Request.”
  • Review your unofficial transcript and confirm all your classes have been recorded before requesting your official transcript.
  • You may view and print copies of your unofficial transcript or course history online at any time.
Can I transfer courses from another institution and apply them to my NCTI degree or certificates?

Yes, you can transfer courses from another institution toward your NCTI/ Arapahoe Community College (ACC) degree or certificate(s), but only if your student status is active and you have declared a major with ACC. 

Please take the following steps, in the order noted below, prior to submitting your transcript for evaluation.

Step 1:    Contact: Amanda Lewis, Services Supervisor (Records and Enrollment Services), at ACC via amanda.lewis@arapahoe.edu or 303.797.5621

  • Provide your name, ACC-issued S number and/or NCTI-issued username/account number (if you have this available).  Additionally, communicate you are calling regarding the ACC/NCTI certificate and degree program, as well as your intent to declare your major.
