Academic Partners

Colleges and Universities Accepting CIC Credits:

As part of a regionally accredited institution, other colleges and universities may accept CIC courses for transfer credit purposes, and CIC has developed specific academic partnerships with regionally accredited universities whose degrees align well with our academic vision and educational programming. 

Graduates from our certificate programs can apply to several partner institutions for completion of a master’s or doctoral degree program.  Academic partners generally accept 9-12 graduate semester credits dependent on the certificate program, and the number of courses completed with CIC. 

We have over 30 partner institutions. Many partners provide full-time, part-time, and/or online learning opportunities. Several CIC partner universities updated their agreements over the previous year to include new degrees and acceptance of additional NDU CIC certificates.
