  • If a student changes their degree program, they are eligible for a review of their NRF Foundation certificate(s) for possible transfer credit.
  • If a student has already had an Initial TCE completed, their documentation has already been reviewed, and no additional paperwork is to be submitted, they are NOT eligible for this internal policy.
