Transfer FAQs

  1. How do I know if my credits will transfer easily to a four-year institution?
    The schools that have "transfer guides" are those with which Northeast has an official articulation agreement. By clicking on the school of your choice, you will find a listing of course equivalencies between Northeast and the transfer institution. Please read any comments accompanying the course equivalency. They will give you additional information about transferability.

  2. What is "articulation"?
    Articulation is a term used to describe courses that are accepted by four-year institutions because the content is the same. Articulation agreements are official contracts between institutions that outline the transferability of courses.

  3. What if I want to transfer to a school not listed here?
    Northeast Community College is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools so many of our courses will transfer to institutions across the United States. Each individual institution is responsible for determining whether or not they will accept transfer credit from another institution.
    If you plan to transfer to a school with whom we do not have an official agreement, it is important to stay in contact with that institution regarding your course schedule to ensure that the courses you are taking are transferable. Someone in the Admissions, Registrar's or Records Office will be able to provide guidance on transfer issues. You may wish provide them a copy of the course description and in some instances a course syllabus.

  4. What can I do to make the transfer process go smoothly?
    Transfer from one institution to another can be an easy process. With a little planning and awareness on your part, you can plan a schedule of classes that will provide you with a smooth transition to your next institution. It is important to consult your advisors at both institutions and the Transfer Guides and Information page on the web to make course-scheduling decisions that best meet your needs.
