Frequently Asked Questions


How do the credits work?
St. Norbert College conducts a qualifying pre-test and final exam, giving you credit upon successful completion of the course. The registrar’s office will send a transcript to any college or university. While some schools don’t accept transfer credits as a policy, most colleges and universities do accept St. Norbert College credit courses due to the history and reputation of our program. And, naturally, credits earned in the College Credit Program will be applied toward degree requirements on the St. Norbert College campus.

What is dual credit?
A dual credit course is a college course taken by a high school student for which the student earns both college and high school credit at the same time. College Credit dual credit courses are taught on the high school campus during high school hours. By participating in the College Credit Program, you can make substantial progress toward your college degree before finishing high school.

How do I obtain a transcript?
Courses you take through the College Credit Program will appear on a St. Norbert College transcript. This is your official record of enrollment at the college and is maintained by the office of the registrar. You must request an official transcript from St. Norbert College to be sent to the university or college you are attending (unless you are coming to SNC, then no transcript is needed) in order to transfer your credits. Contact the university you are attending to find whether the transcript needs to be a hard-copy or electronic version. The fee for each transcript is $10.

St. Norbert College transcripts are ordered online through the National Student Clearinghouse. A link to this request form can be found on the registrar's website. Very important! When filling out the request form, remember to mark the box “hold for grades”. This will ensure that only complete transcripts will be sent to your institution, saving you both time and money.

How do I register?
Each winter, the teachers and counselors at College Credit Program participating high schools announce the following year’s program. They conduct pre-testing at the high schools in February or March for English and mathematics courses. Each applicant must provide an updated transcript and take the appropriate pre-test. St. Norbert College selects participants based on the applicant’s overall GPA, past grades in the discipline and test scores. Once selected, the applicant works with his or her counselor to schedule the College Credit course for the following semester and fill out an online registration form. Payment for the course(s) is due during the first two weeks of the high school’s fall semester. For more information about this, please refer to the CCP student handbook.

How do I find out if the credits transfer?
Please contact the registrar's office at your prospective college or university for complete information on how St. Norbert College Credit Program classes transfer.
