Point Loma Nazarene University has created transfer agreements with multiple colleges and universities to help current and prospective students choose transferable General Education courses. The courses listed on the agreements are pre-approved* to transfer to PLNU.   If you are a current student and have questions regarding these agreements, please contact the Records Office.  If you are a prospective transfer student, please contact a Transfer Admissions Counselor for more details.  You may apply to PLNU with any number of units; there is no minimum credit requirement.  Our transfer agreements list all the General Education required at PLNU, but you do not need to complete these courses in order to apply.  

If we do not have a transfer agreement for your institution, please read our GE Transfer Guide.  This comprehensive guide will help you through the process of selecting transferable GE courses.  Please keep in mind, lower-division courses from a junior college will not transfer for upper-division (300-400 level) requirements at PLNU.
