Review Your College Credit Hours
You are eligible to apply as a beginner student if you have less than 12 semester credits completed.
This minimum does not include advanced/dual credit earned through high school coursework, remedial college coursework, or test results such as AP and IB.
Submit Your Transfer Application
For spring and fall enrollment (classes start in January and August, respectively), the transfer application is made available in August. The application and evaluation of your transfer credit each cost $55. The transfer credit evaluation fee is non-refundable.
The deadlines are strict, and all previous college transcripts must be received for applications to be complete, so we advise applying as early as possible before the term you want to start. Plan ahead and request these materials at least two weeks before the deadline if you need transcripts sent to PNW.
Explore Which Credits Will Transfer to PNW
If a course match isn’t found in the system, that doesn’t mean the course isn’t accepted—it just hasn’t been reviewed yet. Your academic advisor can provide additional information to help with that process. We also encourage transfer students to visit the Indiana Commission for Higher Education’s TransferIN website to view the Core Transfer Library (CTL) to see a list of courses that will automatically transfer among the Indiana colleges and universities included on the website
In the end, we’ll use your official college transcripts’ final grades to decide how college credit will transfer to PNW. Your prior academic work must have been completed at a university with regional accreditation and received a C- or higher.
Undistributed credit will be transferred for coursework that is not a match for PNW courses. As a PNW student, you can consult your academic advisor to find out whether any requirements in your degree plan can be satisfied using undistributed credit.
Submit Your Final Transcripts
You must submit final transcripts from every college you’ve attended (from any university, not just the most recent) after submitting an application. Failure to do so could lead to enrollment cancellation or admission denial.
