Transfer Credit

Admission to NSC as a transfer student will be based on the students’ collegiate academic record. An applicant must have a minimum of 12 transferable credits from a two or four-year college or university with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0. Courses completed at other institutions will be evaluated on a course by course basis at the time of admission. If the applicant has an overall grade point average of 2.0 or above but completed less than 12 transferable credits, freshmen admission requirements must be satisfied.

Students are required to submit ALL transcripts of courses completed after high school regardless of intention to transfer work. All transcripts must be submitted in a sealed envelope from the institution.  Official transcripts may also be sent from an institution electronically to:  Transcripts that are faxed or opened by the student will be considered unofficial.  

Students who are transferring from a Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) community college and have completed the associate of arts, associate of science, or the associate of business degrees will be admitted to NSC with full junior status and their core curriculum requirements considered satisfied.

Transfer Course Equivalency
The transfer equivalency site is intended as a guide for our prospective transfer students and is a work in progress.

International Transcripts 
If a student has a high school or college education from abroad and is a United States citizen or permanent resident, courses from those institutions can be used toward completion of a degree at NSC. Send official transcripts to an evaluating agency, request a course by course evaluation from the company selected, pay the fee and have the official evaluation sent to NSC.

Although we do not endorse any specific agencies here are a few suggestions:
