Northwestern College may accept credit for classes taken at an accredited college or university if the grade earned is C or higher, the class is college-level and credit bearing, and is equivalent to a course taught at NC in the student's major.
Students must complete 50 percent of the entire program and 50 percent of the major credit requirements at NC. If the student changes majors, his/her transferred credit will be reevaluated at the student's request.
College credit earned in foreign countries will be considered for transfer after a student has successfully completed 12 credit hours or more at NC with at least a 2.0 GPA. If the transcript is not in English, it is the student's obligation to have an official translation and evaluation performed by an education credential evaluator. This evaluation must be performed by a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services. For approved evaluation agencies, please contact the International Student Advisor in Bridgeview.
Unless permission is received in advance, a student may not transfer credits taken after he/she begins classes at Northwestern College.
