Northwestern students participate in orientation.

Students who transfer to Northwestern say our college is exceptionally welcoming and easy to fit into. Regardless of your reason for transferring—whether you’re graduating from a community college or want to find a college that’s a better fit for you—we’ll do everything we can to ensure a smooth transition. 

On average, between 50 and 60 students transfer to Northwestern each year. We accept all qualified courses from your previous institution(s). If you are transferring in 30 or more credits, you need to complete your final 30 credits at NWC in order to receive a Northwestern College diploma.
