Transfer Information

Transferring Credit to NICC

Northeast Iowa Community College accepts credits transferred from other accredited colleges and universities in which a minimum grade of C- has been earned. Courses which correspond to an equivalent course at the College are transferred at face value and may be used to fulfill major requirements. Grades for transfer courses are not computed into a student’s NICC cumulative GPA.

Students requesting to transfer college credit earned must have the previous institution send an official transcript to the NICC Admissions Office. A transcript must be provided from each college or university attended to be considered for credit transfer evaluation.

NICC will not accept unofficial transcripts for transfer credit evaluation. Unofficial transcripts are accepted only for admission test waivers and to provide documentation for prerequisite coursework. Courses completed more than five years ago may be transferred at the discretion of the department dean. There is no charge for credit granted through transfer. When a question exists as to the equivalency of a course, a request will be made for a description of that course from the college that granted credit.
