Transfer Credit

Students with questions regarding whether transfer credit will be accepted should refer to our Course Transfer Equivalencies page. Please note that this is not an exhaustive list, but includes courses that have transferred to University of North Georgia in the past. If, after reviewing this page, students still have questions about the transferability of credit, contact the Office of Baccalaureate Admissions, or if a prospective cadet, the Cadet Admissions Office.

Academic Renewal Policy

Information is available regarding UNG's Academic Renewal Policy.

International Transcripts

Any international transcript must have an official course-by-course credential evaluation conducted by an independent evaluation service that is a member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services, Inc. (NACES). Please see our International Student Requirements for more details on this evaluation. For students interested in majoring in Education, please be aware that the Georgia Professional Standards Commission (PSC) does not recognize evaluations from World Education Services (WES). For more details on agencies accepted by the PSC, review the PSC website at www.gapsc.com.
