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 accredited institution, and additional coursework needed to fulfill a specific degree/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 allows students to know what is required for an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, an Associate of Applied Science degree with a technical major, or a Certificate of Completion. The degree audit outlines to students that they must complete at least 62 or more hours of college coursework. It provides that a student must complete a minimum of 18 semester hours in residence of NCTC for any degree or certificate. A student must have a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 in the work presented for any degree. These requirements are outlined on each individual degree audit, and must be completed before a student can earn a degree.
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.

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.
