Transfer Students

Neumont may award transfer credit from an institution accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education for courses that meet our evaluation criteria. Courses taken at a foreign institution are accepted on the basis of the report of a credential evaluation service. Credit is accepted only for college-level courses in which a grade of 'C’ or higher was earned. The number of credits awarded for a course will not exceed the number of credits offered for the related Neumont University course.

Required Degree Courses

For credit by examination of course equivalency for a Neumont University required degree course, students must pass a Neumont University competency test for that specific course. Contact the Office of the Registrar for a current list of available competency tests.

Transferable Courses

For transfer credit for a required course, the transferring course must be comparable to the Neumont University course for content and general outcome requirements. The Office of the Registrar will review the transcript and course description in the original institution’s catalog or class syllabus for the time period the course was taken. The University may accept transfer credits to meet course requirements as long as the course is in a subject area offered at Neumont.

For information regarding the maximum number of transfer credits Neumont will award, see the Student Handbook.

Advanced Placement Acceptance Policy

Neumont University may award credit for Advanced Placement (AP) examinations. For detailed information please see the Student Handbook.

Military Credit

Programs at Neumont University are approved for veterans training. Neumont evaluates military experience for University credit, based upon the Army / ACE Registry Transcript System (AARTS) and the Sailor / Marine / ACE Registry Transcript (SMART) systems.

AARTS transcripts are available to regular Army enlisted soldiers and veterans, as well as active duty Army National Guard personnel and reservists. SMART transcripts supply similar information for active duty Sailors and Marines, enlisted officers, reserve component personnel, and separated or retired Sailors \and Marines.

Only courses, training, or military experience that fulfill Neumont's general education requirement categories are evaluated from official AARTS or SMART transcripts. Neumont follows the American Council on Education recommendations for military transfer credits.

Concurrent Enrollment

Neumont University accepts limited concurrent college-level general education credits. Students may transfer up to nine concurrent enrollment (CE) general education credits from other accredited institutions, prior to graduating from Neumont

Students wishing to participate in the CE program must declare their intention to do so prior to their withdrawal from Neumont. Students who are dismissed from Neumont will not have the opportunity to participate in the CE program. Failure to notify the Registrar at or prior to the time of withdrawal may void the CE option. Students typically have one calendar year, from the date of their withdrawal, to fulfill graduation requirements.

Official transcripts from the credit-granting institution are required for proof of course completion. The student bears all expenses for any courses taken at another institution.

Students are advised to verify potential credit transferability with the Registrar prior to enrollment at another institution. Decisions regarding transfer credit are made on a case-by-case basis. Previous transfer credit decisions do not guarantee future credit acceptance. Typically, CE credits include general education courses not unique to Neumont’s core curriculum that demonstrate academic rigor from accredited institutions.

Undergraduate Program Overview


Neumont University takes pride in its unique and systematic approach to deliver a quality education.  Neumont uses a problem- and project-based, competency-based, active learning, and online learning curricula to maximize the learning of each student.

Neumont offers five Bachelor of Science degrees in its undergraduate programs:

Project Courses

Neumont University believes the key to a useful and applicable degree is a team-based, hands-on experience with real software projects. In support of this, students spend a large amount of their time working in teams on pertinent, real-world development projects. These project courses, together with the core lecture courses as well as the General Education courses, provide students a rich and challenging learning experience which will result in an excellent education.

To ensure depth of instruction, Neumont will occassionally couple a lecture and project course. Coupled lecture and project courses are considered one prerequisite; a student must pass both in order to move into the next combination. Only one coupled lecture and project course may be taken per quarter without Registrar approval.

There are a variety of project environments in which students work, both internal and external. Students work on internal projects while they are learning the intricacies of specific skills associated with their discipline. Internal software projects are controlled, designed, and structured by Neumont University instructors and professors to ensure that students master the required competencies. Students participate in external Enterprise Projects developed for external customers with real business needs and constraints. These projects give students exposure to the types of environments they may encounter in their careers.

General Education Courses

General education courses provide instruction in foundational subject areas. While these courses are not tied directly to projects, whenever possible, general education topics are supportive of what students are learning in their projects and other degree-related courses.
