Transfer of Credits from Regionally Accredited Postsecondary Institutions
Credit earned at other institutions will transfer to NWC upon evaluation from the Registration & Records Office. Lower division, freshman, and sophomore college-level courses completed with a grade of C or higher from regionally accredited institutions may be accepted in transfer. Upper division, junior, senior, and graduate-level courses may be accepted in transfer to satisfy degree requirements with advisor approval.
When students transfer to NWC with an associate of science, an associate of arts, a bachelor's, or a graduate degree from an accredited institution, NWC will accept that general education curricula, although students still must fulfill the Wyoming constitutional requirement. However, students transferring with an associate of applied science degree must fulfill NWC's general education requirements if they are working toward an associate of arts or an associate of science degree.
