TRANSFERABILITY TO FNU / RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT
Students who wish to continue their studies at FNU may transfer up to 50% of the total number of credits required for completion of a program. That is:
- A maximum of 60 credits towards a 120-credit program.
- A maximum of 40 credits towards a 80-credit program.
- A maximum of 37 credits towards a 75-credit program.
- A maximum of 30 credits towards a 60-credit program.
- A maximum of 22 credits towards a 45-credit program.
- A maximum of 15 credits towards a 30-credit program.
The procedure for transferability of credits to FNU is as follows:
1. The applicant submits an original transcript of his/her courses from the previous institution(s) at the time of registration or within the first term of enrollment (two months).
2. The University Registrar and/or the Vice-President of Academics will render an evaluation of submitted transcripts.
3. This evaluation is filed in the student’s Academic file. A copy of this document is submitted to the Office of Financial Aid for computation.
Grades and grade point averages are not transferred; courses transferred will appear on the Student Progress Report as “TC” credits.
Transfer credits are granted only for those courses in which a grade of “C” or better was earned. Criteria for transferring credits from an A.A. or A.S. degree program awarded at FNU to a baccalaureate program is shown on page 44. For internal transferability from one program to another program, the student must satisfactorily pass at least 25% of the credits corresponding with the new career to graduate.
FNU will accept credits from regionally accredited institutions that are applicable to the applicant’s program of study. FNU will accept credits from non-regionally accredited institutions for courses which are substantially equivalent in content to FNU’s courses and applicable to the applicant’s program and evaluated on a course by course basis. The acceptance of classes from non-regionally accredited institutions is contingent upon appropriate faculty credentials and applicable course content to the degree program.
Credits from international institutions will be evaluated and granted on course equivalency basis. The transcript must be translated into English and evaluated by an authorized educational evaluations and translations agency.
FNU reserves the right to choose the credentialing institutions it recognizes.
