Minimum Credit Hour Completion Rate (PACE)

All students must earn a minimum of 67% of the credit hours that they have attempted, including transfer credit hours and semesters the student did not receive aid. The credit hour completion rate is calculated by dividing total earned credit hours by the total number of credit hours attempted.

Example: A student has attempted a total of 24 credit hours at NU (transfer credits included). In order to meet the minimum credit hour completion rate requirement and be eligible for financial aid for future semesters, the student must have earned 16 of those credit hours (24 x 67% = 16).
