Credit Evaluation

Upon your transfer to Northwestern, you will receive an evaluation of your transfer credits from the Registrar's Office. The summary shows:

If you receive credit for a course that closely approximates one taught at Northwestern, then the relevant course number will be indicated on your credit evaluation. If you receive credit for a course that does not closely match any Northwestern course, then just the department name and the course level (100, 200, or 300) will be indicated.

Some of your transferred coursework may have already been designated during the initial transfer credit evaluation as equivalent to one or more WCAS distribution requirement courses. You may petition for additional transfer coursework to fulfill distribution requirements after you begin as a student at Northwestern. For more information about the petition process, contact your Weinberg College Adviser directly.

If you think any of your credits were evaluated incorrectly, then you should discuss this with your College Adviser.
