Transferring credit to IU Northwest
In order to make sure any dual credit courses that you took in high school are accepted as IU Northwest credits, you will have to find out what university administered the course. Contact your high school guidance office for this information. Then, once the course is completed, contact the administering school’s Registrar to request an official transcript (you must have a “C” or better) as you will need this to register at IU Northwest and receive official college credit.
For current students of IU Northwest dual credit courses
The dual credit program is a program for juniors and seniors who take classes in participating high schools to earn high school credit and IU Northwest college credit at the same time. Classes take place at the high school and are taught by high school teachers. Students learn what college professors expect while still in familiar high school surroundings. For more information see the guidance department at the participating high schools.
