If you’ve started your nursing or healthcare education at another accredited school, you might be able to transfer those credits. Transferring credits can get you on track to complete your program in less time and at a lower cost.
We make it easy to apply for transfer credit. You’ll need to request two things from your previous institution(s):
Keep in mind these materials must be received before starting your first term to be considered for transfer credit, so the sooner you can provide them, the better.
To accept your credits from another accredited institution, you’ll need to meet these conditions:
Non-science related general education courses must have been completed within 10 years of starting classes.
After we receive your submission, we’ll audit your coursework to determine if the courses submitted are equivalent to courses offered.
If your credit transfer is approved – You will receive an official letter from us by U.S. mail. At this point, you should contact your admissions representative to take the next steps in the enrollment process.
If your transfer is not approved – If you have questions about why your transfer wasn’t approved, you can contact Student Services and set up an appointment to discuss it with your program director.
Active service members and veterans may request credit as documented on their Joint Services Transcript for all allowable courses according to equivalencies determined by the American Council on Education. Individuals who present with relevant military education and experience equal to but not limited to Basic Medical Technician Corpsman (Navy HM or Air Force BMTCP), Army Health Care Specialist (68W Army Medic), or Air Force Independent Duty Medical Technician (IMDT 4N0X1C) are eligible for advanced placement in a prelicensure nursing program. All courses can be challenged; however, individuals must have prior relevant education and experience that meet the specific requirements of each course.
For questions about transfer credits, including credits associated with CLEP test scores, contact Student Services and we’ll be happy to help.
