Transfer Students

Notre Dame College has a fair and generous policy for transferring academic credit earned within the preceding five years at a regionally accredited college or university. Course work completed more than five years ago at a regionally accredited college or university is evaluated on a course-by-course basis.

NDC accepts college credits from regionally accredited institutions of higher learning. Credit at NDC is contingent upon the following factors:

  • The student must have received a grade of C or higher.
  • The course(s) must have been taken above the 100 or 1000 level.

Prospective transfer students may need to provide course descriptions and a syllabus to determine the equivalency to Notre Dame College courses.

In order to graduate, transfer students will need to complete at least 32 credits at Notre Dame College and abide by all other graduation requirements. Each student is assigned a faculty advisor to ensure the student meets all academic requirements.
