Certification Credits

Certification Credits allow students to receive course credit for certifications in specific, identified areas as recommended and approved by full-time faculty members in discipline areas which have been pre-approved.

Students must have completed one Northwestern Michigan College course before the certification credits will be recorded on the official transcript.

The procedure for students to receive credit is:

  • The student will present the certificate to the lead instructor in the educational area appropriate to validate the timeliness and authentication of the certificate earned. See below.
  • See the Registrar in the Registration office to have the appropriate form completed for application of credits for certifications.
  • The Registrar will send the form to the lead instructor.
  • The instructor will complete the form with the name of the course and credits, and return the form to the Registrar in the Records and Registration office.
  • The Registrar will record the credits on the official transcript and mail results to the student.
  • Credits will be recorded as transfer-in credits. No grade will be assigned.
