In 2012 Unitek College achieved 2 major regulatory milestones: the Sacramento campus received approval to participate as a Title IV awarding institution, and ACCSC renewed the Fremont campus accreditation for a period of five years. In 2013, the Sacramento branch campus moved to a larger facility which received approval from all regulatory bodies, and the Santa Clara satellite campus moved into a larger facility in San Jose, CA. Also in 2013, Unitek College s parent company, Unitek Information Systems, Inc. underwent a change of ownership.

Student MUST have completed at least five of the six modules as of the actual date of the NCMA exam. 3. If, for any reason (including instructor input), the student chooses to test early (see 1 and 2 above), then the student will be responsible for registering and paying for the NCMA exam. If student passes, Unitek College will reimburse the student for the exam cost. If the student fails, though, Unitek College will not consider this to be one of the attempts. 4. The first NCMA exam attempt must be within 60 days of completion of the last module. The second attempt (if needed) must be within 60 days of the result of the first attempt. 5. The second free attempt is ONLY valid for students who attempted (and did not pass) the exam at the first attempt. If, for any reason, the student did not make a first attempt, within the required time, the second (free) attempt is considered null and void. To qualify for the exam passing assistance, students must score 95% or more on the online practice tests provided by Unitek College. Unitek College School Catalog Updated 8/21/2015 Page 18 of 114
