Your Steps

  • Apply As a Freshman

    New to college? Move from high school to NGU in a simple step. This is the traditional path—apply in your senior year and start working on your bachelor’s degree in the fall. Gap year? Sure, apply away.

    Bring your college credits and we’ll figure out how to apply them to your NGU degree. If you’ve earned 12 or more credits at another college or university, then you’re eligible to transfer to NGU. (If it’s less than 12, apply as a freshman.)
