How My Classes Transfer
NSU provides academic support to new and returning transfer students in the form of
transfer credit evaluations and transition advising. Coursework is evaluated on a
course-by-course basis to determine whether or not coursework satisfies specific general
education, major, or minor requirements. All credit hours will be posted to your NSU
transcript, provided the credit hours were earned at a college or university that
has been fully accredited. Ask an Advisor how your credits or associate degree may
NSU has several Smart Choice partnerships with area community colleges. These Smart Choice agreements represent a commitment on the part of faculty and staff to help students achieve a smooth transition and reach their bachelor’s degree goals.
