If you have attended college prior to NOVA, you should request your official transcript from each institution attended. Additionally for Nursing applicants you should request your high school records as well. In order to know what will officially transfer to NOVA, you must have each transcript evaluated by the College Records Office. Simply submit your official transcript at any campus along with a Transcript Evaluation Request form (125-049). The process takes approximately four to six weeks.
It is pertinent that you begin this process as soon as possible. If you have other types of transfer credit such as AP, IB , ClEP follow the same steps.
