Transfer Evaluation Services for Undergraduate Students

Transfer Credits

NSU will transfer a maximum of 90 degree-applicable credits toward a degree, including credit for the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), proficiency exams, and prior experiential learning. NSU will transfer courses from previous institutions for which a student has earned a grade of C or higher. Remaining credits and at least 50 percent of credits in the student's major must be earned at NSU in regular academic offerings.

Transfer students who have earned an Associate in Arts degree or 60 credits as of 1992 to the present from a Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) accredited institution and who are in good academic standing, as defined by the transfer institution, shall be admitted to NSU with junior standing. Grades of C- and D will transfer under this policy.

Transfer Policy Acknowledgement Form

Applicable credits will be transferred based upon received transcripts. The evaluation of transfer credit will be performed on both unofficial and official transcripts. However, a student will not receive full acceptance to the university until all final official transcripts have been received. Students will be advised to take courses at NSU based upon the completed transfer evaluation.

Foreign Transcripts

An official course-by-course evaluation must be submitted to be fully admitted to the university and to receive a final transfer credit evaluation. Courses completed at foreign institutions must be evaluated by an approved foreign credential evaluation service. For a listing of agencies, visit the International Students and Scholars Web site.
