Required Documents

  1. Complete the admissions application.

    Visit our apply page to access the Common Application for transfer students. The application includes a prompt for the Personal Statement (250-500 words). Supplemental forms, such as the “Registrar Report” and “Instructor Evaluation,” are not required.

  2. Submit college transcripts.Submit official transcripts from every college or university you’ve attended in the past or are currently attending, including non-accredited institutions, online institutions and institutions where you may have only taken one course.

    To expedite the process, you may submit an unofficial or electronic transcript but you will still need to submit official transcripts.

    * If you are applying to transfer with fewer than 30 transferable semester-units (45 quarter units), you must also submit:

    • Official high school transcript.
    • Official standardized test score report (SAT or ACT).
  3. Submit a letter of recommendation. 

    Submit a letter of recommendation in support of your application for admission, preferably from a professor or advisor. Letters may also be written by a supervisor. No supplemental form is required to accompany a letter of recommendation.

  4. Submit a FAFSA. 

    Apply for financial aid using the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and include NDNU with our school code 001179. March 2nd is the priority financial aid deadline and Cal Grant deadline.

Additional Requirements for International Applicants
