FAQs

How do I change my name or address with NCCC?

You may request your mailing address to be updated by going to “Banner Web”, “Enter Secure Area”, “Personal Information”, “Address Update Request”.  Enter your new mailing address and click “Submit”.  Your updated address should be reflected in our system within 1-3 business days.  This process is for mailing addresses only.  Further information is required to update your legal address.

You may also click on the printable Personal Identification Change Form on the Registration & Records Office website and print this for mailing to the Registration & Records Office (A-201). You may also visit the Registration & Records Office (A-201) to complete the form in person. If your name has changed, you will be asked to provide legal documentation of the name change; e.g. driver’s license, marriage or divorce certificate, court action, etc.

How long does it take from the time my transfer transcript reaches NCCC until I am notified by mail?

The process may take 3-4 weeks. Therefore, please have your transcript sent as soon as possible after you have received grades at the college previously attended.

How do I know for which courses I have received transfer credit?

Once your official transcript has been received by the Admissions Office it is forwarded to the Registration and Records Office to be evaluated. Once your transcript has been evaluated, you will be notified by email as to what has been accepted. Transfer credits will appear on your transcript with a grade of “T”. The “T” carries no point value, therefore, it is not considered when calculating the semester, degree, or cumulative GPA. Transfer credits carry earned hours only.

This form requires the approval of the class instructor. You will be required to make arrangements with the instructor for completion of the coursework. The maximum time for the change of an I grade to a performance grade is determined by the instructor but shall not exceed one academic year. If a change of grade is NOT made by the instructor prior to the deadline, the I grade will automatically be converted to an F grade.

How do I receive an S/U or W grade?

Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) grades are elected by filling out an S/U Grade Request form available on our website. If you wish to elect this, you must do so by the 13th week of the regular semester. Once this has been submitted to the Registration & Records Office, the decision is irreversible. The form must be initiated by the student and signed by both the instructor of the class and the student’s advisor. Withdrawals (W grades) are elected by filling out the Drop or Withdraw from a Course form available on our website or in the Registration & Records Office. This also must be completed by the 13th week of the regular semester. A “W” grade will not affect your grade-point average, but may negatively impact your academic standing and/or ability to receive financial aid.

Please be aware that this may have a negative impact on enrollment verifications, employer inquiries, promotions, etc.
