Degree-Applicable Credits Policy


First-time-in-college students who have earned college credits while in high school may elect not to transfer their college credits into NSU. In some cases, this would enable a student to retake a specific course at NSU without financial aid limitations. If this applies to you, notify your academic advisor and complete the necessary request before the end of the drop/add period of your first semester at NSU. Please discuss with your academic advisor in advance if you have any questions.

Visit http://www.nova.edu/registrar/forms/degree-applicable-courses-faq.pdf to review NSU’s degree-applicable policy.

The deadline for submission of the Credit Award Adjustment Form is by the “end of drop/add” of the first enrolled semester for students to request that incoming college credit or credits are not applied towards their degree. For the 2020/2021 academic calendar, the drop/add dates are as follows:

Fall 2020 August 23, 2020
Winter 2021 January 10, 2021
Summer 2021 May 16, 2021
