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 University Registrar's Office on a case-by-case basis.

  • Transfer credit from other regionally accredited institutions may be granted for courses that apply to MVNU academic programs. Credit from non-regionally accredited institutions is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

  • Transfer credit is granted for those courses for which a grade of D or better was earned when those courses were part of a student's earned associate or baccalaureate degree. If a student has not completed a degree, transfer credit is granted when a grade of C- or better was earned, provided the courses are comparable to those of MVNU. Grades from accepted courses will not be factored into the student's GPA at MVNU.

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

  • 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.
