In many cases, classes you have taken elsewhere will transfer directly into the Archway Curriculum or into your major. You may use our WebAdvisor software to check on how a specific course will transfer: select “Guests” then “Transfer Equivalencies.”

NWU has designed the Archway Curriculum to enrich our students’ skills development within and beyond their majors throughout their time at NWU. You can find the full Archway Curriculum in our Course Catalog. We want you to get the most out of your undergraduate career and still graduate on time and therefore we adjust the Archway Curriculum according to the number of credits you bring to NWU*.
