Transcript evaluation

Getting your transcripts evaluated is easy—send your transcripts to our assistant director of admission for a free, unofficial evaluation so you’ll have a good idea of where you can start in the degree-completion program. Before you register, you will receive an official transcript evaluation, listing what courses and how many credits North Park will accept from your previous work.

Academic advising

Our admissions team will review your transcripts, let you know how much credit will likely transfer to North Park, provide tuition rates, and give you an estimate of the amount of time it will take to complete your degree.

An admission decision is usually made within one week. If you are accepted to the School of Professional Studies, you will receive an advising letter from our staff, along with your official transcript evaluation. Your advising letter will detail coursework transferred to North Park, as well as coursework required to complete your bachelor’s degree. When you enroll, you must submit official transcripts (if you have not already) prior to the end of your first semester.
