Transfer Visit Day is designed for transfer students and families to learn more about transferring credits, admission criteria, academics and general campus life.

Although general transfer credit information will be provided, due to the large volume of students attending this visit day, individual transcript evaluation may be limited. Transfer specialists will be available for individual questions after the visit day commences, on a first-come, first-serve basis.

If you have not submitted a free application for admission, please be sure to bring a transcript with you from each institution attended in order to get an unofficial evaluation from Transfer Services. Official  transcript evaluations are only provided upon application and receipt of official transcripts.

Northwest also offers Daily Visits, which is a great option for transfer students to receive a more personalized tour, academic appointment and the opportunity to meet one-on-one with a transfer specialist in Transfer Services.

*Students will not be able to register for classes during Transfer Visit Days. Students who have been accepted to Northwest for the upcoming fall trimester should sign-up for one of the New Transfer and Returning Student Orientation and Registration dates.
