Matriculation/Degree Fees

The International Institute of Christian Counseling (IIOCC) will accept your credits and provide a Bachelor's Degree for $750.  The Master of Clinical Christian Counseling has an IIOCC degree fee of $1000.


The NCCA currently charges $1500 to transfer your course credits to Cornerstone University of Lake Charles, LA after completion of Phase III. The school will then issue the Bachelor's degree without further cost or study on the part of the student. The entire transfer is handled by the NCCA.  

After Phase IV the MA  Matriculation/Degree Fee is $1500 from any of the NCCA associated schools.

Separating the degree fees from the coursework reduces costs for those not requiring a degree.  Matriculation fees go to the universities for issuing the degree.   This is a link to the NCCA schools page.
