How to Use Your Credit Recommendations

Your training has been evaluated for college-level semester credit equivalency, but how do you use this information?

Colleges and Universities

To see if the institution of your choice will honor the credit recommendations and course descriptions, approach the Registrar of that institution with a copy of your agency's Site Visit Report and Course Descriptions along with a letter from your training academy/agency detailing your training accomplishments. View a Criminal Justice Training Assessment Training Letter Example (PDF).

Please note: Acceptance of academic credit in transfer from an academy or another college is always at the discretion of the receiving institution.


This service was designed for non-Excelsior College students who want to consolidate their academic records for employment or educational purposes. It enables an individual to record and report accumulated college credit from numerous and/or various sources onto a single Excelsior College Credit Bank transcript. Having all college credits on a single transcript means fewer documents to handle and file. An Excelsior College transcript also makes it easier for employers or other colleges to recognize the credit already earned. For more information visit our OneTranscript page.
