Transfer Agreements and Pathways

Transfer (articulation) agreements indicate the way that courses from a transfer institution will satisfy NDNU general education or major prerequisite requirements. The transfer credit agreements for a particular academic year reflect any changes in NDNU transfer policy for that year.

It is important to use the correct transfer agreement for the year in which you took the courses. This ensures that the credit evaluation will be accurate. To choose the correct agreement, simply use the agreement that was active at the time that you took the transfer course. For example:

Course was taken: Fall, Spring or Summer 2014 Use: 2014 – 2015 Articulation Agreement
Course was taken: Fall, Spring or Summer 2015 Use: 2015-2016 Articulation Agreement
Course was taken: Fall, Spring or Summer 2016 Use: 2016-2017 Articulation Agreement

The Transfer Pathways program eliminates the obstacles with the transition from the Community College to certain bachelor’s programs at Notre Dame de Namur University (NDNU). Our counselors and advisors will work with you to determine an individualized academic plan to map out and get you into the classes you need to graduate on time. Students can use these pathway documents as a guide.

Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC) Policy

Students attending a California Community College may complete the requirements in the Intersegmental General Education Transfer Curriculum (IGETC). The IGETC is not an admission requirement for Notre Dame de Namur University, and does not guarantee admission.

Students may complete the IGETC requirements for either the CSU or UC system. Additional upper division NDNU General Education or institutional requirements must be completed prior to graduation from NDNU (Upper-division Writing, Religious Studies, Cultural Diversity, and Community Engagement, as needed). Please note that if you have already completed coursework in any of these subject areas, you may have satisfied some or all of these requirements.

The Community Engagement and Cultural Diversity requirements generally do not add units to a student’s program, but are met by enrolling in courses that meet both a Community Engagement or Cultural Diversity requirement, and a General Education or Major requirement.

Please contact the Admissions Office and speak with a Transfer Counselor for more information or to request a transfer credit evaluation.
