  • What Should I Know About Chapel at NGU?

    Chapel is held on Mondays and Wednesdays at 10:00 a.m. in Turner Chapel. We also offer occasional evening services at different times throughout the semester. The worship is typically led by students, and the speakers come from all around the world.

    Chapel is worth half of one credit hour each semester. A student’s grade is based on appropriate chapel conduct and attendance:

    • A = present at 22 or more services
    • B = present at 20 to 21 services
    • C = present at 18 to 19 services
    • D = present at 16 to 17 services
    • F = present at 15 or fewer services
  • Is There a Curfew at NGU?

    NGU does not have a curfew; however, our campus front gate and main buildings close at 12:00 a.m. on weekdays and 1:00 a.m. on weekends. We have a no-loitering policy after these hours. If students are coming or going, we ask that they have their NGU Student IDs with them. Our Campus Security Officers may ask to check their IDs in order to ensure that those entering campus are permitted to be here. This is a successful security measure we take to make sure that our students are safe.

Policies & Special Cases

  • Non-Degree Seeking Student

    An applicant who wishes to enroll in only a few classes for personal satisfaction, but who does not wish to pursue a degree, may be admitted as a Non-Degree Seeking Student . An application and application fee are required. No financial aid will be awarded. Non-Degree Seeking Students are limited to six hours of coursework each semester up to a cumulative total of 18 hours, unless granted an exception by the Registrar.

    In order to go beyond 18 hours, a Non-Degree Seeking Student must be fully admitted (have transcripts sent to North Greenville University and take any required entrance tests). Upon full acceptance into a degree program, the student may request that all coursework taken as a Non-Degree Seeking Student be applied to degree requirements. The student must complete the Request for Previous Courses to be Applied to Degree form, available in the office of the Registrar. Submit the completed form to the Registrar.

  • Transient Student Admission

    Students who are enrolled in another college or university who wish to take a limited number of courses at North Greenville University may do so as transient students.

    To enroll in NGU classes, the transient student must complete a North Greenville University application, pay the application fee, and present a transient student letter. The transient student letter must list the courses to be taken at NGU, and an appropriate official at the transient student’s home institution must sign it.

    No institutional financial aid is awarded to transient students.

    Students seeking academic accommodations should review the information found at Student Accessibility. For questions, students can contact student.accessibility@ngu.edu or call the Office of Student Accessibility at 864.977.2022.

Transfer Students

Transfer Scholarships are awarded annually to applicants who transfer from an accredited institution. A student must have 24 hours in order to receive transfer academic scholarships. If a student does not have the required hours, we will request high school transcripts and each awards package will be given on a case-by-case basis, with consideration to both high school and college transcripts.

Campus visits are the best way to experience our uniqueness for yourself and discover why you belong at North Greenville University! To make an appointment to tour the campus, call the Admissions Office at 864.977.7001.

  1. Complete the Application for Admission.
  2. Submit the $35 application fee.
  3. Submit official transcripts from all institutions previously attended.

You must have at least a 2.0 GPA and 12 transferable hours to be considered for transfer admissions.

Any student with less than 12 hours must then meet freshman admission requirements.

Transfer of Credit

Transcripts are evaluated in the Registrar’s office prior to enrollment. A copy of the accepted courses is given to the transfer counselor in admissions, who contacts you.

Upon enrollment and receipt of official final transcript, the Registrar enters classes in the student’s North Greenville University transcript. You will be notified through campus mail of the courses accepted. The notification is recorded in your permanent file.

Credits earned at another accredited institution may be transferred back to North Greenville University, provided the grades are “C” or better and the courses are relevant to the curriculum at NGU. The transfer grades will not be used by the university in computing grade point average, but will be used as “earned hours” in accumulating hours for a degree.

A grade of “D” in a single subject may be transferred back to the university only if it affects graduation at North Greenville University and the cumulative GPA at North Greenville University is 2.0 or higher.

Want to transfer coursework back to North Greenville University? You must have written permission from the Registrar’s office. A minimum of 25 percent of all credits applied toward a degree must be earned from North Greenville University.

You must earn 30 of the last 36 credit hours in a degree program at North Greenville University, unless an exception is approved by the respective dean and vice president for academics.
