Undergraduate students wishing to transfer a course(s) from another institution should secure in advance the approval of the Registrar's Office. Credits from regionally-accredited institutions, with grades of "C-" or above, may transfer to Nebraska Wesleyan.
In order to transfer credits to Nebraska Wesleyan University, students are responsible for requesting an official copy of college transcripts to be sent directly to Nebraska Wesleyan University. Official transcripts can be sent via an approved electronic service by the sending college/university, such as the National Student Clearinghouse or Parchment. Alternatively, official transcripts can be mailed to Nebraska Wesleyan University, Registrar's Office, 5000 St Paul Ave, Lincoln, NE 68504. Transcripts that are hand-carried, faxed, emailed, or marked "issued to student" are not accepted as official and cannot be utilized to evaluate or issue transfer credit.
Current NWU Students will receive a "Transfer Credits Posted" confirmation message via NWU student email approximately 7-10 business days after receipt of an official transcript for transfer credit. Prospective NWU Students should work directly their designated Admissions Counselor to navigate the transfer process.
