Planning and Advisement Documents

The online documents in this section are designed to help you engage effectively in planning and advisement during your time at ECC so that the transition to Medaille goes as smoothly and successfully as possible:

Niagara County Community College and Medaille College Joint Enrollment Program Agreement PDF: administrative and describes the overall policies and procedures for joint enrollment agreed upon by officials at both institutions

Master List of Transferable Courses PDF: identifies every NCCC course accepted for transfer credit at Medaille. It also notes, when applicable, equivalencies between comparable NCCC and Medaille courses. The Master List is definitive, and should take the mystery out of whether a specific NCCC course will transfer or not. Any NCCC class on the list will transfer at least as a free elective. Most will apply to specific degree requirements at Medaille.

Cooperative Degree Program Curriculum Guides are perhaps your most important resource and advisement tool. Look for the Guide that corresponds to your NCCC degree program. Each Guide provides you with a critical overview about the application of all your transfer courses toward various categories of graduation requirements in your intended Medaille major. The Guide also directs you how to make the most effective use of electives in your NCCC program to maximize credit transfer. If you follow all the guidelines faithfully, then you will be positioned to complete your Medaille degree in two years of standard course loads.


I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
