Prospective students often wonder whether they should pursue a degree or a diploma; ICE is now able to offer students the opportunity to do both. Get your dual Culinary and Management diploma at ICE and apply your ICE credits toward an associate’s degree at Excelsior College. If you already have some college credits, you may also be able to transfer them making the path to your degree even shorter.
How It Works
ICE is proud to have been evaluated by the National College Credit Recommendation Service (NCCRS), an organization chartered by the New York State Board of Regents to make college credit recommendations. As such, graduates of ICE’s Culinary Arts Program can transfer their ICE credits and receive up to 19 college credits, graduates of ICE Pastry & Baking Arts Program can transfer their ICE credits and receive up to 18 college credits, graduates of ICE’s Hospitality Management Program can transfer their ICE credits and receive up to 19 credits and and graduates of ICE’s Culinary Management Program can transfer their ICE credits and receive up to 14 college credits.
Double Your Fun
ICE graduates that earn double diplomas (Culinary Arts and Culinary Management or Pastry & Baking Arts and Culinary Management) can transfer their credits and receive up to 33 college credits. Did we mention you can earn a double diploma at ICE, in two award-winning programs, in the time it takes to earn one diploma elsewhere? Plus, we’ll take 20% off the tuition.
NCCRS makes credit recommendations to 1,500 colleges and universities to use as a guide in granting college credit for courses taken at non-degree granting institutions. The privilege of evaluation does not mean that ICE can itself award college credit, only a college or university can do that. In addition, the actual amount of credit that an ICE graduate will receive will be determined by each individual college or university. Please contact the ICE Registrar for more information.
ICE has partnered with Excelsior College, formerly Regents College, a leading regionally accredited college offering flexible, on-line degrees in 27 disciplines. The college has 33,000 currently enrolled students and has 148,000 graduates to date. As part of this partnership, ICE graduates with a GPA of 2.0 or higher will be able transfer up to 29 credits toward their degree and will receive a discount on fees and tuition.
