Transfer Students

If you’re considering transferring from another major at the university or to Northern Arizona University from another college or university, please contact the Program Coordinator, John Tingerthal.

Transfer credits 

Evaluators in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions review your transcript to determine your total number of transfer credits and if any courses count toward satisfying the university’s liberal studies requirements. The department then evaluates your transfer credits to determine if any courses fulfill requirements for your major. 

Although the university may accept credits as transferable university coursework, the department does not apply transfer credit for 300-level or above courses with Northern Arizona University CM prefixes.  

Credit for work experience

No credit toward your degree is given for prior work experience.

Credit in other areas of study

If you have considerable proven experience in one or more areas of study, you may be allowed to substitute other university-level work in business, engineering, mathematics, or science for the replaced courses. These substitutions will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
