Getting Started with Nossi College

I Have College Credits, Will They Transfer?

Find out if your credits are compatible by sending Nossi an unofficial transcript. You’ll need a C average or higher for credits to transfer, and the college you’re transferring from must be accredited. Once you provide an official transcript, our registrar will confirm which credits will transfer, and you can move forward with enrollment.
