Frequently Asked Questions
There are two ways to participate in this program. Answers to these questions will be specific to one of the two. Students may take the courses as non-credit, (courses that do not offer college credit but may be taken for personal or professional interest), or students may have the courses converted into an official NSU transcript for credit toward the Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems degree. Within the first year of enrollment in competency-based courses, students who elect to complete the courses for credit towards the degree program must apply for admission to the University. Upon acceptance, the courses will be converted into college credit hours towards the Computer Information Systems bachelor’s degree.
- If the student is pursuing non-credit, no credit towards degree, the student must be of legal age (18) for the State of Louisiana to apply for the CB program at Northwestern State University.

- If a student is pursing college credit towards the completion of the degree he or she must begin the process for admission to the university.
