Non-Degree-Seeking Students

Non-degree-seeking (NDS) students can take NCM classes à la carte for credit in NCM's distance education program taught by our online professors.  Credit earned as a Non-Degree Student can be later transferred to NCM's ASM program (subject to current transfer credit policy).  Academic courses are offered at $125 per credit in order to cover the cost of academic online instruction and grading. Only program-enrolled students may access student support services, such as Plan of Completion meetings and NCM student support.

NCM currently offers 113 Midwifery and General Education credits, which can be taken as an Associate, Bachelor or as a Non-Degree-Seeking student.


Academics are taught by our online learning coordinators in our distance education program. 


NDS students are not allowed to complete clinicals as an NCM student; clinical apprenticeship begins when enrolled in the ASM program.

Please Note: Consider the amount of time you plan to complete academics prior to enrolling, as some courses have a time limit of 7 years at graduation. In addition, the date of the first recorded supervised clinical to the last must span a minimum of 2 years, and NARM requires all births to be within 10 years, and out of hospital births to be within 3 years.
