Admitted students are automatically considered for transfer merit scholarships up to $20,000, which can be combined and stacked with other aid opportunities
Within one week of your acceptance, you will receive a detailed credit evaluation for the major to which you have been offered admission.
Transcripts are evaluated by the dean of the division that the student wishes to enter and also by the chairperson of the respective major. The total number of semester hours, or their equivalent, accepted for transfer credit is decided by the dean. All applicable coursework must have been completed with a grade of “C” or better. (All transfer credit decisions are subject to the discretion of the dean.)
A transfer student must successfully complete all the NU degree requirements either through course units completed at NU or those accepted in transfer. At least one half of the academic requirements of the major must be completed at Niagara University.

I have had so many opportunities to be in leadership positions which will help me after I graduate in my career. I have really noticed myself stepping out of my comfort zone in many different ways since starting at Niagara.
