SCC Pathways to NWU

Southeast Community College transfer students have a long history of success at Nebraska Wesleyan. NWU and SCC have partnered to give students two pathways to earn a bachelor’s degree. Regardless of the pathway students choose, SCC students will benefit from small classes and personal attention, and experience a smooth transition to a bachelor’s degree at Nebraska Wesleyan University.

Transfer guides for SCC students

SCC students are eligible to transfer to NWU when they have completed at least 12 semester credit hours. These guides will help you determine which courses can be transferred from SCC to meet degree requirements, and which courses must be completed after transferring to NWU.
