Concurrent Credits

SCA is pleased to be partnering with Northwest University in providing college course credit at a fraction of the cost of college fees.
Concurrent Credit is one of the most cost efficient ways to get a head start on a student's college education.

Concurrent Credit Bible Classes

Paul's Epistles (Full Year = 3 college credits)

Systematic Theology (Full year = 3 college credits)

____________________________________________
Receive college credit through Northwest University concurrently with the high school Bible classes offered at SCA!

Students remain in the same classes with their peers and are expected to complete additional work and reading, including a college level textbook and additional papers.

This is a fantastic option for students who have a strong understanding of the Bible and are willing to push and challenge themselves.

College credits would be accepted at Northwest University and could transfer to another college or university.

How are Concurrent Credit courses recorded on student transcripts?
Northwest University records Concurrent Credit courses on university transcripts in the same manner as all other earned credits regardless of how or where the credits were earned. Information includes the course code and title, semester, final grade, and grade point average. Concurrent Credit courses do not contain any special coding denoting how or where they were earned. SCA will also add the course onto the official student high school transcript.

Are Concurrent Credit courses transferable?
Yes! Northwest University is accredited at the same level as all major universities such as University of Washington and Washington State. Concurrent Credit courses earned at NU are transferable to other universities in the same way as all NU courses. HOWEVER: each university sets its own transfer policies, and some courses may not satisfy other university requirements regardless of how they were delivered. An example would be that some science courses may not transfer into another university’s science program. The issue is not the delivery mode but the course content. If you have questions, it is advised to check with the receiving school.
