Transfer Students

  • Students Entering College for the First Time
    If you have not yet attended college:

    Here in Coeur d'Alene, our students usually register for their core requirements (their first two years of core classes like English, Natural Science, Communications, etc...) at a local Community College. The closest options are North Idaho College and the Community Colleges of Spokane

    However, It's a good idea to come and talk to one of our Advisors, even if you plan on spending your first few semesters at one of these institutions. We are happy to sit down and discuss our programs with you, or correspond with you via phone or email.

  • Students from other Colleges
    For Students Transferring from other Colleges/Universities besides NIC:

    It's a good idea to come and talk to one of our Advisors, even if you don't plan on transferring to UI Coeur d'Alene right away. We are happy to sit down and discuss our programs with you, or correspond with you via phone or e-mail.

  • North Idaho College Transfers
    For North Idaho College Transfers:

    If you are planning on transferring to UI Coeur d'Alene within the next two years it's a good idea to come and talk to one of our Advisors, even if it's just your first semester at NIC. You can call and make an appointment with us. Here is a List of University of Idaho Coeur d'Alene Advisers

    We do have Articulation Agreements with North Idaho College. An articulation agreement is an officially approved agreement used to assist students in taking the appropriate courses at a community college that will transfer for credit toward a bachelor's degree at the University of Idaho. These agreements are designed to help students make a seamless transition when transferring to the University of Idaho. If you have any questions please email articulation@uidaho.edu.

    The University of Idaho will transfer up to 70 credits from community/junior colleges towards your degree. Want to know how your NIC credits will transfer to the University of Idaho? Take a look at our equivalency guide to find courses by subject and number.

    Concurrent Enrollment with NIC
    NIC/UI - If you plan on taking classes at both UI and NIC in the same semester, you will want to apply for admission at both institutions. If you have financial aid from UI, you will need to fill out a concurrent enrollment form each semester that you take NIC classes. For full time financial aid, you will be expected to take at least 12 credits between the two institutions.  Ask for more details on the concurrent enrollment process.
