Transferring to HNU

We know this time must be overwhelming, and we are here to help you navigate the transfer process. Our campus is doing everything we can to help transfer students from NDNU complete their degrees on time and thrive as full members of our community. As a partner institution, we will accept all non-remedial credit and pair you with an advisor to map your path to graduation. With the exception of Nursing, none of our majors are impacted.

Our shared mission

Like Notre Dame de Namur, Holy Names University is a tight-knit campus that is committed to individual support. With small class sizes and endless opportunities to connect, we pride ourselves on being a student-centered community that nurtures leadership and service. Founded by the Sisters of the Holy Names over 150 years ago, HNU is driven by their founding social justice mission to this day.
