Students previously enrolled in a nursing program at another college will be considered for transfer based upon their college work to date.
Credit transferred for nursing courses must be from a program that is approved by a State Board of Nursing and has specialized nursing accreditation through the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN), or the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
To be considered for admission into the nursing program, applicants must submit the following documents to the Admissions Department:
- Completed Admission Application
- Official Transcript(s)
- Applicant letter of explanation that details their rationale for the transfer
- Contact information from two faculty teaching at the applicant’s current institution that have taught the applicant.
- A letter from the Dean/Director of the previously attended program sent to the Admissions department indicating that the applicant was not dismissed due to any ethical, legal, safety or moral issues and that the applicant is eligible for readmission. Must be on official school letterhead, and the original signed copy only will be accepted.
To be eligible, the applicant must hold a minimum 2.5 GPA in their current nursing program. Withdrawal or unsuccessful completion (C- or below) of two required science or math courses may result in a denial of admission. Candidates are eligible to apply and be considered for program to program transfer once. If the applicant meets minimum requirements and has a completed application, an interview may be scheduled. The Nursing APG Subcommittee will determine acceptance. If the candidate is offered acceptance, the Nursing APG Subcommittee Chair will communicate to the Chair of the Nursing Curriculum Subcommittee and Dean of Undergraduate Nursing. The Admissions department will notify all applicants of acceptance status. Applicants who have been accepted will have their curriculum placement and plan of study determined by the Nursing Curriculum Subcommittee. Program location, start date, and placement are subject to availability of space in the nursing program, as determined by Records and Registration and program administration.
