Transfer credit policy

If a university is recognized by the Ministry of Education in a student’s home country, or if it is directly accredited by a United States regional accrediting body, we will grant transfer credit. Students can receive up to 90 credits from a four-year institution and up to 64 credits from a two-year institution. You must submit official post-secondary transcripts and course descriptions in English in order to receive transfer credit (an original grade of C or better is required to get transfer credit). Please note that transfer credit will not be awarded for remedial level classes. The academic unit will determine direct equivalency for any major required courses.

Transfer credit is a two-step process. Step one involves international admissions posting transfer credit and determining liberal studies designations. Step two involves the student providing course descriptions and syllabi to the relevant department. You will work with your department advisor to determine if any transferred classes meet major requirements.

Please note that international students transferring to Northern Arizona University may look up course equivalencies on AZTransfer. Select Northern Arizona University and the institution from which you intend to transfer.
