Transfer Equivalencies

Transfer of Credits

Policy: General education course credits meeting the AAS degree requirements may be transferred from a regionally accredited college or university. All general education courses must be passed with a C grade or better to be transferred to Northwest Tech. An official transcript from the credit-granting institution must be sent to the Registrar for review. Northwest Tech adheres to an internal review process for ensuring all courses transferred and applied toward degree requirements demonstrate equivalence with its own courses required for that degree or is of equivalent rigor. Northwest Tech refrains from transferring credit from other institutions that do not apply to the college’s program requirements. Northwest Tech participates in the Kansas System-Wide Transfer agreement led by the Kansas Board of Regents to facilitate seamless transfer amongst Kansas higher education institutions. The college also proactively pursues transfer equivalency agreements and articulation agreements to promote transfer opportunities.
