if you have any transfer credits from a college course taken after graduating from high school. NNU accepts transfer credits from almost all other regionally accredited colleges and universities. The process of applying for admission to NNU is different for transfer students than for first-time freshmen. As an experienced college student, transfer students might be all too familiar with the confusion of transfer credits and other documents and materials to other universities as well as the process of applying for admission and financial aid. At NNU we strive to serve this student group throughout the process with an admissions counselor dedicated solely to transfer students and with helpful and available personnel in the Financial Aid and Registrar's Offices.

NNU uses a Transfer Equivalency System to compare classes from the college you previously attended with those which NNU offers.
