Admissions Checklist

What you need to know before applying to National University.

Please take a few minutes to review these undergraduate admissions requirements before submitting your application:

  • All entering undergraduate students must take the ACCUPLACER mathematics and English evaluation as part of the admissions process. The results of the evaluation are printed immediately and a copy is provided to the student. Read more about Placement by Evaluation.
  • Applicants who have completed fewer than 90 quarter (60 semester) units of transferable college credit must have graduated from high school, or passed a high school-level GED test.
  • High school graduates transferring from regionally accredited colleges and universities are admitted as degree students if their cumulative GPA is 2.0 or higher. Applicants with a GPA below 2.0 may be admitted on probation if the Committee on the Application of Standards judges that there is sufficient evidence of potential to complete college studies. Applicants below a 2.0 may submit a letter to:

    The Committee on the Application of Standards
