Transfer Policy and Procedures

NIU welcomes transfer students who are able to meet its standards and requirements.

Graduates of Illinois community colleges who have earned an A.A. or A.S. degree are admitted to NIU with junior standing and all general education requirements are considered complete. Admission of community college graduates to a specific certification program is based on the candidate's credentials.

NIU certification programs will accept transfer students from other colleges and universities who meet general university requirements and the requirements for admission to the program of choice.

For information about NIU transfer requirements and procedures, please refer to the NIU Transfer Center Web page.

For information about specific certification program requirements for transfer students, contact an advisor in the program(s) of interest.
