2021-2022 Undergraduate Catalog

No Credit

The University makes available a procedure whereby persons may enroll in undergraduate courses for no credit on a space-available basis. Individuals admitted under this procedure must declare, at the time of enrollment, that they do not wish credit for the course. A course taken for no credit cannot be converted to credit except by repeating the course for credit. Students may not change status from credit to no credit.

Individuals enrolling for no credit are not required to go through the formal admissions process and are not required to submit transcripts of past academic work. Students presently under suspension from Northwest or any other institution of higher education are not eligible for enrollment for no credit. Fees for no credit courses are at the same rate as credit or audit courses. 600-level courses and above are not available on a no-credit basis.
