What it takes to complete a bachelor’s degree from NSU. If you don’t complete your AA at TCC, you will need to meet NSU’s specific general education requirements. You must have at least 124 hours completed to earn a bachelor’s degree. Of those hours, 60 must be from a university (4 year school), 40 must be junior and senior (3000/4000) level, and half of the hours in your major must be from NSU. You must also be both English and computer proficient. This means that you must pass English Composition I & II with a “C” or better and demonstrate computer proficiency (high school or college course work / test). Therefore, when you transfer to NSU, you will likely need to complete around 64 more hours in order to earn your bachelor’s degree.
