The Uncommon Core

Resources for Transfer Students

To make the transition to Nazareth as smooth as possible, every transfer student will be required to take a zero-credit Academic and College Success for Transfer Students (ACS 090) course. This course is designed to assist transfer students in making a successful transition to Nazareth College. It focuses on providing resources, fostering important relationships, and helping students understand the Core and College policies and procedures. Many of the courses taken from previous institutions should satisfy the Uncommon Core requirements. The Uncommon Core places emphasis on integration, therefore the task of a transfer student will be to connect prior learning experiences to knowledge learned during time spent at Nazareth College. 

For more information, refer to the Policies for Transfer Students document.
