FNU students are eligible to transfer 12 credits into their program of study from a school that is accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. Challenge mechanisms are available for many academic courses, as well as clinical courses. For further information, please review the FNU Course Transfer Policy and Procedure, Challenge Policy for Academic Courses, and Clinical Challenge Policy.
- Course transfer forms can be found at this link.
- Payment for course transfer is due upon submission of your materials. Courses will not be reviewed for transfer until all fees are paid. Visit our tuition page for current tuition and fees.
- The Program Director or Associate Dean will review the syllabi and determine if the course content and objectives qualify for transfer.
