Good Grades at an Accredited College? Get on the Fast Track.

If you’ve been attending a qualified school and earning passing grades, the Nova Southeastern University Transfer Advantage Program (NSUTAP) could accelerate your admissions process.

Transfer applicants in good academic standing who have earned an Associate of Arts degree or 60 credit hours from the Florida College System or other accredited school may be admitted to NSU with junior standing and granted 60 transfer credits through the ICUF articulation agreement.

Schools may be accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) or similar accrediting commissions. Please review the admissions and application requirements below for eligibility.

Qualifying for the Transfer Advantage

You can qualify for TAP with either 24 or 60 credits. In both cases, you must not have any criminal convictions or any judicial or disciplinary sanctions at your current university.

Option 1: 60 Credits with a 2.2 GPA

If you are transferring from the Florida College System or a school accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACSCOC), you’ll qualify for TAP with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.2 with at least 60 college-level credits.

Option 2: 24 Credits with a 2.5 GPA

If you are transferring from the Florida College System or any accredited school (by SACSCOC or another accrediting body), you’ll qualify for TAP with a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5 with at least 24 college-level credits.
