8.9 Credit Inclusion

The provisions for credit inclusion will be reviewed following the NCEA Review and the Review of Achievement Standards. No new applications for Credit Inclusion will be considered until then. The published list of provisions applies until 31 March 2023

  1. NCEA has provision for recognition of credit equivalents from other qualifications or awards that are quality assured.
  2. NZQA publishes an approved list of awards recognised for credit inclusion.
  3. Credit equivalents from credit inclusion will not appear on the New Zealand Record of Achievement, may be used only once, and do not contribute to the University Entrance Level 3 requirements.
  4. If a School wishes to access credit inclusion for any students, it should complete the correct NZQA form and send it to NZQA with the applicable student results.
  5. Credit equivalents from awards on the approved list are only recognised if they were gained within two years prior to the year of application for credit inclusion.
