transfer students who have completed at least 24 hours of transferable, college-level coursework must have a 2.00 (on a 4.00 scale) cumulative college grade point average in transfer. for students with a cumulative college gpa in transfer below 2.00, consideration may be given based on professional judgment, and acceptance may be granted on a probationary basis. in all cases, a student must be eligible to return to the last institution attended in order to be accepted to northwest.
transfer students who have less than 24 hours completed will be considered for admission on the basis of freshman admissions requirements, in addition to college work that has been completed. (students transferring from non-accredited institutions will also be considered as a first-time freshman; credit cannot be transferred into northwest from a non-accredited institution.)
northwest offers a variety of transfer scholarships and awards on the basis of academic merit and financial need.
