is the process of awarding academic credit for courses, trainings, workshops,
and/or examinations taken outside accredited college programs.
Successful completion of this learning results in a credential, which may
be in the form of a certificate, transcript, or license.
Course credit is based on establishing an equivalency between the
non-collegiate course and a QCC course. The
course equivalency is determined by rigorous faculty review through a process
known as QCC’s Request for Course-Equivalency Credit, or based on nationally
recognized credit recommendations from the American Council on Education (ACE).
Examples of trainings appropriate for credentialing include: computer
certification courses, business-related seminars and workshops, military
education, EMT and Massachusetts Firefighting Academy classes.
After the credit review, a QCC course number and title are noted on the
transcript along with the number of credits and the grade of “P.”
Program restrictions apply.
