We realize you have put in long hours of studying (or at least a few long nights cramming before finals) to earn passing grades in your courses. It is our desire to see you graduate timely and well-prepared. In an effort to see this happen, we will review every course to see how it can apply to our degrees.
Through this process, if you have any questions, please contact your academic advisor or undergraduate admissions:

Before credits are evaluated…

- Submit official transcript(s)

- Must be admitted as degree-seeking
How will my credits transfer to Purdue Northwest?
Students and faculty are able to view established transfer course credits through our Transfer Equivalency System (above). This system compares Purdue Northwest course credits with that of other colleges and universities. If a course is not listed in the report, this does not mean the course is not accepted, it simply has not yet been reviewed for a match.
- Transfer credit is subject to departmental acceptance. Distribution and equivalencies can be changed at any time.
- The distribution and applicability of credits toward your degree are determined by the academic department of your major
- Only course credit is transferable – not GPA
- Only college level (not remedial) credits from regionally accredited institutions earned with a C- or better will be accepted
- We accept a maximum of 90 credits toward a baccalaureate degree
If you are a current Purdue Northwest student and want to enroll in college courses outside of Purdue, you must get your academic advisor’s approval through the CTR4 Form.
Purdue University Northwest encourages transfer students to visit the Indiana Commissions of Higher Education Transfer Indiana website to view the Core Transfer Library (CTL) — a list of courses that will transfer among all Indiana public college and university campuses.
Will my military credits transfer?
Students can receive college credit for active duty service by submitting a copy of their DD-214. This form is not required for admission but is necessary for credit consideration. Proof of six months or more active duty can provide a range of four to eight military undistributed (UND) credits. Students submitting a DD-214 with less than six months active service are ineligible to receive college credit.
ACE (American Council on Education) credits are accepted as transfer credit by Purdue University Northwest. You may discuss departmental credit options with your academic advisor.
