Thank you for your interest in transferring to Northwestern CT Community College!

In order to prepare for your application process, please be sure you have access to the following items to include in your application portal:

  1. Proof of High School Completion
    Proof includes: final high school transcript with graduation date, diploma, GED certificate, or college transcript that shows you have completed a degree program.
  2. Proof of Immunizations
    Proof includes documentation of two inoculation dates for Measles, Mumps, and Rubella and two inoculation dates for Varicella or a verified date that you had the Chicken Pox. (Varicella is not required for anyone born before 1980). These records can be ordered from your pediatrician or your current doctor’s office. There will be a “Proof of Immunization” document in your application portal that you can give to your doctor’s office. You may also request a “titer” test. A “titer” test is a lab test that shows your immunity levels. Talk with your doctor’s office or a local medical lab to request this option.
  3. College Transcript
    Official transcripts are required to transfer your college credit. Request the transcript from the institution where you earned the credit. After requesting the official transcript be sent directly to us, please fill out the Credit Evaluation Form so we can evaluate it and award credit.

You are welcome to begin your application without submitting these items, but you will not be admitted until these items have been uploaded to your application portal.

After you complete an application (the next step) it is important that you upload documents into your application portal to complete your process. You can follow the screen shots provided below to help guide you. 

To submit transfer credits for evaluation, please request official college transcripts from the institution where you earned them and fill out the Credit Evaluation Form.

After you submit your application, you must:

  1. Select that application and look for the “Action”” link under “View.”

 

 

2. See the “Supplemental Items and Documents” at the top and click on that tab.

 

 

3. You will then see a list of the supplemental items that are required and the items that are requested/not required.
