NLCS grants and recognizes credit towards graduation in full units only. We offer no part-year courses and accept transfer credits in less than full units only for application to the 25-credit total requirement but not towards fulfillment of any specific course or distribution requirement.


The Administration will evaluate a transfer student's academic record and determine how to apply previous course work to NLCS' graduation requirements. The decision of the Administration in these matters is final.
