Transfer of Credit
Transfer credit will not be granted for designated capstone courses in the university's academic programs. For students residing outside the state of Oregon, credits earned at accredited business or technical schools, colleges, or universities may be transferred to National American University based on comparability of subject matter, applicability of the credit earned to the student's program, and if the student earned a final grade of "C" or better. For students residing within the state of Oregon, credits earned at regionally accredited schools or from nationally accredited schools approved to offer programs in Oregon may be transferred to National American University based on comparability of subject matter, applicability of the credit earned to the student's program, and if the student earned a final grade of "C" or better. Credit transfer may be restricted to that which has been completed within a recent time period. Students wishing to transfer credits must see that an official transcript of those credits is sent to the registrar. Transfer credits are also subject to the university's residency requirements.
A student who is enrolled at another university may also enroll for course work at National American University as a special student. It is the student's responsibility to request an official transcript of credits earned at National American University to be sent to the university at which he/she is a candidate for a degree.
Foundational nursing students eligible to receive transfer credits for one or more of their nursing foundation courses have the option to request that National American University not accept transfer credit in one or more of the nursing foundation courses. This request must be made at the time of admission and students must first see their nursing foundational core advisor to be advised regarding National American University's admission criteria into the nursing clinical core. The decision to reject the transfer of courses into the nursing foundation core is not reversible.
