    National Louis University Articulation Agreement

    Northern Illinois University and Morton College Reverse Transfer Credit Articulation Agreement

    A new agreement between Morton College and Northern Illinois University will make it easier for Morton College students to earn college degrees that will set them on the path to career success.

    Credits completed at NIU are transferred back to MC and used to satisfy the degree requirements for an associate’s degree, similar to how credit is transferred from a community college to NIU, just in reverse.

    To qualify, students enrolled at NIU who previously attended MC must have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours at MC to be eligible for reverse transfer credit toward a MC associate’s degree.
