“Emory courses taken for S/U credit do not meet NBB degree requirements. In order to receive NBB elective credit, students must receive a passing grade in an NBB course (3 credits minimum), or receive other NBB approved course credit."
Students planning to continue at Emory College from Oxford College should contact Ms. Nadia Brown in the NBB Department (1462 Clifton Road, Suite 304) as soon as possible to help insure they have the required courses for the NBB major. They should also make contact during the designated preregistration period in the Spring semester prior to enrollment for the Fall Semester. At this initial meeting, the declaration, advisor assignment and questions will be addressed and completed. It is the student's responsibility to arrange an appointment with the assigned advisor.
Transfer students should contact the NBB office shortly after arrival. Nadia G. Brown (firstname.lastname@example.org, 404-727-4958) in the NBB office will assist you with NBB questions and options of getting into courses as many courses may be full do to initial registration.
