Transfer Credit Policy

North Central College accepts coursework in transfer from other regionally accredited institutions, as well as from those accredited by national accrediting agencies recognized by the American Council on Education. Coursework from nonaccredited institutions may also be accepted pending successful completion of 27 credit hours at North Central College.

In addition to participating in the statewide Illinois Articulation Initiative, North Central maintains articulation agreements with numerous area community colleges. Coursework from all other institutions is evaluated on a course-by-course basis as to its applicability to North Central College program and graduation requirements. As a general rule, courses that are vocational or technical in nature, or courses designed strictly for professional programs, are not transferable.

Grades for all coursework that is accepted in transfer, including F, are calculated into the student's North Central College grade point average. A maximum of 60 credit hours from two-year colleges may apply toward the 120 hours required for graduation.
