What is the difference between a transfer and freshman applicant?
A freshman applicant is classified as any student who has not completed any college credit after graduating from high school.
A transfer applicant is any student who has completed at least one hour of college credit after graduating high school.
Transferable college credit is defined as any course credit that is recognized by the General Education Category (GEC) catalog. Any course credit earned that is not listed in the GEC catalog is reviewed by University College at NCCU. University College also reviews all course work that is departmental or major specific.
