The College Records Office (CRO) is responsible for evaluating:

  • Transcripts from colleges and universities within the United States and foreign transcripts that have been evaluated by WES, IERF, FCSA, or ECE.
  • Non-traditional credits including AP, ABLE, ACE, CLEP, CAMBRIDGE, DSST, IB, SAT II and as well as high school transcripts.
  • College-level credit from earned through work experience or from another type of learning institutions.

Your transcript will not be processed if you have not:

  • Applied to NOVA and/or have an active application on file.
  • Declared a program of study.
  • Submitted official transcript/test score.
  • Students must have completed at least one course at NOVA before an official transcript reflecting transfer credit will be issued.
