The Uncommon Core

Resources for Transfer Students

Students who transfer to Nazareth College in Fall 2015 and beyond will be under the Uncommon Core. You will be oriented to the Uncommon core in a zero-credit workshop, where you will be introduced to the overall structure, requirements and rationale of the core. You should be able to use many if not all of the courses from your previous institution to satisfy the Uncommon Core requirements. Because the emphasis in our core is integration, your task will be to connect your prior learning with what you learn during your time at Nazareth College in the Core Milestone Experience and an Experiential Learning Pathway. We will make your transition to Nazareth College as smooth as we can!
