Northern Kentucky University

NKU has developed several pathways to assist KCTCS students determine what courses they should take to transfer to a specific program at NKU.  Students wishing to transfer credits outside of the pathways listed below will have their application of transfer evaluated on a course by course basis. 

NKU has established a dual admission program to assist KCTCS students with their transfer to NKU. The NKU application fee will be waived for participants in this program. 

KCTCS students in an approved pathway are eligible for admission with junior standing to NKU provided they submit a completed application and have a minimum of 60 credits with a 2.0 or higher GPA.  

Reverse Transfer
Reverse transfer allows students who transfer to another school before earning their degree at KCTCS to earn their Associate's Degree when the missing coursework is completed at the other school. KCTCS has an agreement with Northern Kentucky University to award eligible students an Associate Degree through reverse transfer.  For more information, contact the transfer coordinator at the KCTCS college you attended.
