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 2019/2020 academic calendar, the drop/add dates are as follows:

Fall 2019 August 25, 2019
Winter 2020 January 12, 2020
Summer 2020 May 10, 2020
