The College of Nursing may accept transfer credit earned in an accredited college. The College is the final authority on granting transfer credit and determining how transfer courses and credits apply toward a degree in nursing. Transfer credits are recorded with no grade or quality points assigned. Grades from transfer courses may be considered for admission purposes.

Transfer requests will be evaluated by the Director of Undergraduate Programs, Student Services Coordinators, and/or appropriate undergraduate course coordinators utilizing the following criteria:

  1. Similarity of transfer courses to current course requirements.
  2. The course grade must be a 2.0 on a 4.0 scale to be considered for transfer.
  3. Credit earned more than ten years prior to application for admission will be reviewed by the undergraduate student services office. Applicants may be required to repeat some courses. The Director of Undergraduate Programs may review these credits and act as the final authority for transfer credit.
  4. Courses not considered applicable for transfer are those:
    1. Grade "I" (Incomplete), "W" (Withdrawal), or Audit.
    2. Completed but not given for credit.
    3. Remedial in nature.
