Additional Information for Students Transferring Credits to NSCC:
Transfer credit will be allowed for any previous courses in which a “D” or better grade was earned from a U.S. or Canadian regionally accredited institution of higher learning, unless NSCC has a specific requirement for a “C” in a specific course. International students may receive credit for coursework taken at foreign institutions of higher learning by:
Credits transferred to NSCC will apply toward graduation only if they satisfy requirements for a particular major. Transfer credit not required by a particular major may be counted as additional hours completed.
Transfer credit may be awarded for courses in which a student received credit through a proficiency exam taken at another regionally accredited institution. Such credit will be given only if the transcript clearly indicates that credit was granted for the course at another institution. If the transcript simply indicates that a proficiency exam was taken but credit was not given for the course, Northwest State will not accept the proficiency as transfer credit.
Students may receive credit for courses taken at non-accredited institutions by successfully passing a proficiency examination, if one is available.
In order to be eligible for the associate degree at the College, at least thirty percent of the credits must have been earned at Northwest State Community College.
