Northampton Community College will accept credits when transferring from another institution when the following criteria are met:
A minimum of 25% of credits required for any degree, certificate or specialized diploma must be earned through NCC course work. Remaining credits may be awarded through transfer or as outlined in the Advanced Placement Policy.
Admissions determines transferability of credits for new students and change of majors into the allied health majors; the Registrar determines all other transferability of credits.
Transferred credits are recorded at the top of the NCC transcript as "Transfer Work". Grades do not transfer; transfer credits have no effect on the Northampton Community College grade point average (GPA).
Transfer with a Bachelor's degree
A student possessing a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university and enrolling at Northampton in an Associate's degree program shall be considered to have completed the general education core requirements except for required courses identified by the program faculty. Check with Admissions Office for approved list of general education courses transferrable into each program. A student possessing a baccalaureate degree from an institution not regionally accredited will have the credential reviewed on a case by case basis.
