Nevada State College Passport Block

The Passport Block listed here is for general information only. Students must see the institution's website for access to its official block.

PASSPORT BLOCK OVERVIEW

The NSC Passport aligns with our Core Curriculum. Students who finish our Core Curriculum will we very close to completing the Passport, and students who follow the Passport will complete our Core Curriculum. However, students who want a Passport from NSC must be sure they complete COM 101 to satisfy the Oral Communications block, as this is an option (but not a requirement) in our Core Curriculum. Also, students who transfer to Nevada State must satisfy a statewide requirement to complete a class in the Nevada Constitution. Typically, tranfer students satisfy this requirement with a one-credit class.
