Establishes criteria by which transfer credit can be accepted.


This policy applies to undergraduate applicants and students


The College of Nursing (CON) 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 nursing 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 and Student Services coordinators utilizing the following criteria:

  1. Similarity of transfer courses to current course requirements, with transfer course evaluated for 80% consistency with selected college of nursing course.
  2. The course grade must be a 2.33 on a 4.0 scale to be considered for transfer.
  3. Credit earned more than seven years prior (see Policy 5.2.3) 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. Graded as "I" (Incomplete), "W" (Withdrawal), or Audit.
    2. Completed but not given for credit.
    3. Designated as remedial in nature.
    4. Courses that require a lab when the course taken had no lab component (e.g., Microbiology, Chemistry, Anatomy, Physiology).
    5. Courses outlined in Policy 5.2.3 that require a letter grade.
