Transferring Credits

University of Northwestern is registered with the Minnesota Office of Higher Education. Registration for individual courses is not an endorsement of the institution.

Registration does not mean that credits earned at the institution can be transferred to other institutions or that the quality of the educational programs would meet the standards of every student, educational institution, or employer.

Contact the Registrar's office with questions about transferring credits.
