In order to be considered, transfer students must be in good social and academic
standing at all institutions previously attended. Students who transfer from
approved institutions of higher education, may have credits earned in those
institutions accepted without validating examinations, by doing the following:
Submitting complete transcripts from
schools attended. Regular placement is dependent on evaluation of the
transcript. Transcripts will not be regarded as valid unless they are sent by
the registrars of the respective institutions directly to the Admissions &
Enrollment Management Office of Northern Caribbean University. Not more than
96 semester credit hours may be accepted toward a bachelor's degree or
32 semester credits toward an associate degree or a diploma.
Submitting course outlines if
exemptions are desired.

accredited or approved college/university.
Transfer credits are regarded as
provisional from the time of an applicant's admission until the completion of
16 credits, with at least a 2.5 GPA, and are
applied to their permanent record at the time of graduation.
If students request a transcript from
Northern Caribbean University before they graduate, credits from institutions
previously attended will not be listed on the transcript. After the Admissions
and Records Office has received official transcripts, an assessment will be
given to the students and to the relevant department chairpersons.
Students applying from non-approved
colleges/universities with a grade point average of at least 2.00
may be accepted on probation. Status will be regularized only after the
completion of 16 credits with at least a 2.5 GPA.
