Transfer Rights and Responsibilities



Transfer agreements are officially approved agreements that match coursework between Nevada State College (NSC) and the Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) community colleges. These agreements are designed to make the transfer into Nevada State College as easy as possible for the student.

If you are a student transferring from a Nevada System of Higher Education (NSHE) community college and have completed an Associate of Arts (AA), Associate of Science (AS), or Associate of Business (AB) degree, you may be admitted to Nevada State College with full junior status. You will not need to take any additional classes to satisfy NSC's Core Curriculum requirements.

For further explanation on how the transfer agreements work, please review the NSHE Student Transfer Rights and Responsibilities page.

Transfer Course Equivalencies



Nevada State College needs to receive official copies of all coursework completed at any previously attended institution.

Nevada State accepts official transcripts via two methods - paper or electronic.

  • Nevada State prefers to have all documents sent electronically. Electronic transcripts should be sent to
  • If mailed, please send to 1300 Nevada State Drive, Henderson, NV 89002

Please visit the Registrar portion of your previous institutions website to see exactly how to request an electronic transcript.

Please note: Most institutions utilize the National Student Clearinghouse to send and receive transcripts, but please check with your previous institution before moving forward with any request.

Transcripts and test scores submitted to Nevada State College become the property of Nevada State College and will not be released to students, other colleges, or agencies. Please plan to request a personal copy from your former college or university if you need one for your own records.



Are you a United States citizen or Permanent resident, and have a college education from abroad? Those may be used towards completion of your degree at Nevada State College. To complete your journey to becoming a Nevada State College Scorpion, we ask that you complete the following steps.

-Send your official documents to an evaluating agency

-Request a course by course evaluation from the company selected

-Pay any required fees and have the official evaluation sent to Nevada State College

-You will need to also submit an official copy of your original documents, such as a transcript or marksheet, to our Admissions Office. The original documents DO NOT need to be translated.  Your evaluation will NOT be reviewed until an official copy is sent to our school.

If you have any issues with finding an evaluating agency, we do not specifically endorse any, but here are a few suggestions that may help you get started.
