Degree Audit/Transcript Evaluations
Why is it that I need one?
The degree audit, which North Central Texas College provides when requested by a student, is an outline of degree requirements based on a specific catalog year and degree or certificate chosen. It shows coursework that has already been completed at NCTC and/or work transferred in from another regionally accredited institution, and additional coursework needed to fulfill a specific degree/certificate. The degree audit is an extremely useful tool in guiding students in the right direction toward completing an individual degree or certificate.
The degree audit changes each year depending on what is offered in the current year’s catalog. NCTC offers a wide range of Associate degrees as well as Certificates of Completion, and any student can request a degree audit for any degrees or certificates that are offered at NCTC.
A student who enrolls at North Central Texas College during any academic year and who earns college credit for work done during that year may chose to have a degree audit under the provisions of the current catalog, the catalog in force during the student’s first year of enrollment, or the catalog of any succeeding year during which the student was enrolled. The degree audit, if a student is planning to complete the degree or certificate, applies provided the student meets the requirements no later than five years from the date the catalog selected.
The degree audit is an extremely useful tool in guiding students in the right direction toward an individual degree or certificate. A student should have a degree audit because it will outline the degree requirements that are needed and guide an individual in the appropriate direction when attempting to complete coursework towards a degree/certificate at North Central Texas College. The degree audit is an essential document that provides students with guidance on what courses need to be taken to successfully complete a degree or certificate.
The degree audit can be accessed in a current student's MyNCTC Student Portal or printed in the Registrar’s Office on any campus.
If you have been to another college or university and wish to have your credits from that college transferred to NCTC and show up on your degree audit you must fill out a Transcript Evaluation Form. If your previous college or university was out-of-state, you must submit course descriptions with your request. Official transcripts must be on file with the Registrar's Office prior to submitting your request.
