Transfer Policy

Notre Dame College Online has a fair and generous policy for transferring academic credit earned within the past 10 years at a regionally accredited college or university. Coursework completed more than 10 years ago through a regionally accredited college or university is evaluated on a course-by-course basis; some may transfer in only as electives but Computer courses older than five years will not transfer.

Notre Dame College Online accepts college credits from regionally accredited institutions of higher learning. Credit is contingent upon the following factors:

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

In order to graduate, transfer students will need to complete at least 30 credits at Notre Dame College Online and abide by all other graduation requirements.
