National College Credit Recommendation Service
Since 1973, National CCRS (formerly National PONSI) has been evaluating training and education programs offered outside of the traditional college classroom setting and translating them into college credit equivalencies. National CCRS coordinates teams of college faculty evaluators and subject matter experts to conduct extensive reviews of education and training programs offered by corporations, unions, religious organizations and proprietary schools. Over 1,500 Cooperating Colleges and Universities will consider granting actual college credit based on CCRS credit recommendations and in accordance with their own transfer policies. Saint Joseph’s College will award appropriate credit based on CCRS recommendations.
