Although students who have not graduated from high school are not
recruited, some students who have completed their junior year are ready
for college work. Such students may be admitted upon the recommendation
of the Admissions, Financial Aid, and Academic Standing Committee
according to the following guidelines:
1. Admission of high school seniors for one or more courses requires the following:
a. Concurrent work toward completion of high school requirements must be in progress.
b. A recommendation from the high school principal or counselor must be on file.
c. A high school record, which is sufficiently outstanding to predict success in college level courses, must be on file.
2. Admission without high school graduation requires the following:
a. Evidence of completion of the junior year of high school
b. A written recommendation from the high school principal
c. SAT or ACT exam scores that are high enough to predict success in college work
An applicant who wishes to enroll in only a few classes for personal
satisfaction, but who does not wish to pursue a degree, may be admitted
as a special student. An application and application fee are required.
No financial aid will be awarded. Special students are limited to six
hours of coursework each semester up to a cumulative total of 18 hours,
unless granted an exception by the Registrar.
In order to go beyond 18 hours, a special student must be fully admitted (have transcripts sent to North Greenville University and take any required entrance tests). Upon full acceptance into a degree program, the student may request that all coursework taken as a special student be applied to degree requirements. The student must complete the Request for Previous Courses to be Applied to Degree form, available in the office of the Registrar. Submit the completed form to the Registrar.
Transient Student Admission
Students who are enrolled in another college or university who wish to
take a limited number of courses at North Greenville University may do
so as transient students.
To enroll in NGU classes, the transient student must complete a North Greenville University application, pay the application fee, and present a transient student letter. The transient student letter must list the courses to be taken at NGU, and an appropriate official at the transient student's home institution must sign it.
No institutional financial aid is awarded to transient students.
Policy Concerning Students with Learning Disabilities (Academic Accommodations)
North Greenville University does not have special programs for
learning-disabled students, but an effort will be made to make
necessary to allow those students to perform at their best.
Any student having an identified learning disability or other handicap that might affect academic performance should complete the form available in the Learning Disabilities Liaison Office. Instructors who suspect that a student has a disability should advise the liaison office.
In order for special arrangements to be made, the student must provide the following to the Learning Disabilities Liaison Office:
- A current medical evaluation of the physical or emotional disability (completed within three years of the request) from a licensed physician or psychiatrist or
- A current evaluation of a specific learning disability (completed within three years of request) from a licensed psychologist or certified school psychologist
The evaluation must identify a specific disability and contain specific recommendations for assisting the student. The student must request, in writing, each semester of enrollment that accommodations be made and authorize release of evaluation information to appropriate faculty and staff. A form will be provided for this purpose.
Prior to initial registration, all students must have on file with the Office of Student Services a signed New Beginnings form and a completed health form. The health form must include verification of immunization. No student may register for classes without verification of required immunization.
To receive a refund, a student must officially withdraw. Charges shall continue up to the day the student starts the official withdrawal process. The student must contact Student Life to begin the official withdrawal process.
Tuition will be refunded according to the following schedule:
- Before classes begin - 100%
- During 1st week - 75%
- During 2nd week - 50%
- After 2nd week - 0%
- Before classes begin - 100%
- During 1st day - 75%
- During 2nd day - 50%
- After 2 days - 0%
This policy applies to all students, i.e., commuters, residents, full-time, and part-time.
There will be no refund of fees.
There will be no refund of the room and board fee after a student officially checks into the residence hall.
Federal funds shall be returned in accordance with federal policies at the time of withdrawal. Students withdrawing prior to completion of 60% of a semester may owe additional funds due to the loss of Federal aid. Students are urged to consider this factor prior to making the decision to withdraw from school.
Institutional aid shall be prorated by the same schedule as mentioned in Item #2 above.
Private scholarships will be used to pay any remaining balance.
If you have any questions, please contact the NGU Financial Aid Office.

Transcripts are evaluated in the Registrar's office prior to enrollment. A copy of the accepted courses is given to the transfer counselor in admissions, who contacts the student.
Upon enrollment and receipt of official final transcript, the Registrar enters classes in the student's North Greenville University transcript. The student is then notified through campus mail of the courses accepted. The notification is recorded in the student's permanent file.
Credits earned at another accredited institution may be transferred back to North Greenville University, provided the grades are "C" or better and the courses are relevant to the curriculum at NGU. The transfer grades will not be used by the university in computing grade point average, but will be used as "earned hours" in accumulating hours for a degree.
A grade of "D" in a single subject may be transferred back to the university only if it affects graduation at North Greenville University and the cumulative GPA at North Greenville University is 2.0 or higher.
Students wishing to transfer coursework back to North Greenville University must have written permission from the Registrar's office. A minimum of 25 percent of all credits applied toward a degree must be earned from North Greenville University.
The student must earn 30 of the last 36 credit hours in a degree program at North Greenville University, unless an exception is approved by the respective dean and vice president for academics.
