Block Transfer Policy - Bachelor's Degrees

If a student holds an Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), or Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree from an institution that is nationally or regionally accredited by the US Department of Education, then transferring college credit may help satisfy many or all of the lower-division general education requirements needed toward completing an NAU bachelor’s degree. To maximize college credit transfer, some degrees allow for a block transfer of credit, while others may require a course-by-course evaluation.

Block transfer credits may also be subject to other NAU policy guidelines such as currency, residency, and transfer credit verification. NAU may also enter into transfer credit articulation agreements that include additional language for granting block transfer credits and are designed to maximize credit transfer and portability.

Students who were deemed eligible for block transfer upon enrollment, but then decide to switch programs or plans of study, will undergo a reevaluation of eligibility for block transfer in the new degree program.
