Students transferring from another institution should follow MVNU's standard admissions process. Additionally, official academic transcripts must be sent directly to Mount Vernon Nazarene University from each previous institution attended.

Before Applying

Academic standing is determined from these transcripts, subject to the following conditions:

  • An endorsement of good standing from the institution last attended is required, including an official academic transcript. Transfer credit is granted for courses from other accredited institutions which may apply to the academic program of Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

  • Course credit from non-accredited institutions is evaluated by the Academic Records and Registration Office on a case-by-case basis.

  • Transfer credit is granted only for those courses for which a grade of C- or better was earned. Transfer courses accepted and grades earned are posted on the student's transcript upon enrollment. Accepted transfer course grades are used in determining academic status, graduation honors, etc.

  • MVNU requires a 2.0 GPA in order to be accepted as a transfer from another institution.

  • Up to 94 hours of transfer credit may be accepted from other accredited four-year institutions, or up to 64 hours from junior or community colleges, provided the courses are comparable to those of Mount Vernon Nazarene University courses. Thirty (30) of the final forty-five (45) semester hours of credit must be earned from Mount Vernon Nazarene University.

  • Students on academic or disciplinary probation or dismissal from another institution must contact the Admissions Office to determine the necessary steps to be considered for admission to Mount Vernon Nazarene University. The Admissions and Recruitment Committee makes the final decision.
