Welcome, Transfer Students!
Transferring to a new university is both exciting and challenging. The advice you'll find here is aimed at helping you find the resources and information you'll need for a smooth transition into Weinberg College.
Before you arrive on campus, you should familiarize yourself with the credit evaluation you've received from the Registrar's Office. You should also take a look at our answers to frequently asked questions for incoming transfer students and at our best advice for getting started.
This website has a lot of useful information on academics in Weinberg College, including a summary of degree requirements for transfer students, on advising in Weinberg College and elsewhere within the university, on rules and policies of the College and the university — particularly some special rules for transfer students — and on tracking your progress. You can start thinking about how your transfer credit will fit into our degree requirements by using our worksheet. In addition, there are a number of resources around campus that you should be familiar with.
Things to do before arriving on campus
- Request that your AP scores, and your final semester grades from your previous institution, be sent to the NU Registrar. Consult our AP/IB table to see how your scores will count.
- Bring with you to campus syllabi and course descriptions (and course reading lists, if not otherwise noted) for any college classes that you’ve taken in your proposed major or minor.
- Have you satisfied the foreign language requirement? Consult our proficiency table, Wildcat Welcome's placement exam information, and Council on Language Instruction's website to determine where you stand.
