Nursing Transfer Policy

Students interested in transferring into the four-year B.S. nursing program need the following for consideration:

  • Overall GPA greater than 3.0.
  • C+ or higher in general education courses which are required for the nursing major.
  • Personal statement indicating your capacity for clinical learning experiences.
  • No felony convictions (precludes ability for RN licensure). The school may request a “background check” to comply with clinical sites.

Eligible applicants will be considered for a transfer into the nursing program as space becomes available.

Due to course sequencing, there is no guarantee that a transfer student would be able to complete their B.S. degree within four years from when they start. An advisor will create a plan with a student who is accepted on an individual basis.

Applicants who have been dismissed from another nursing program for academic or professional conduct reasons will not be considered for transfer in the B.S. nursing program.
