Admission will be granted to students who have begun their work at other colleges or universities, providing the student satisfies the regular requirements for admission to the U of N. In order to apply for transfer credit, the applicant should request a transcript of course work from the previous school to be forwarded to their U of N academic adviser for evaluation. The adviser will evaluate the transcript and forward a recommendation to the International Provost’s Office. Transfer credit must be from a legitimate tertiary institution and must not exceed 72 undergraduate credits for a BA/BS candidate or 24 credits of graduate-level courses for a MA/MS candidate. Work for which credit is sought must have been completed satisfactorily, satisfy the requirements for the U of N degree program in which the student is applying, and be approved by the College in which the degree is offered.
Transfer credits are accepted only for Bachelor’s or Master’s degrees, not for an Associate’s degree. A thesis is required when a student transfers more than 12 credits towards a U of N Bachelor’s degree. There is no time limit regarding the age of the course work requested to be transferred in to U of N; however, transfer credit will be posted on a transcript only after the completion of all other degree requirements.
