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.
- Meeting a grade of "C" on all transferable credits. For a credit to be accepted, it must be relevant to the student's particular programmes at Northern Caribbean University. An applicant's work may be summarized on one transcript, but transfer credits will not be accepted until an official transcript has been received from each institution.
- Meeting Northern Caribbean University entrance requirements if transferring with less than sophomore standing from an accredited or approved college/university.
