Admission of Transfer Students
Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences welcomes applications from transfer students. A transfer student is defined as a student who has earned college credit at a post-secondary institution and who desires to transfer or use that credit at another post-secondary institution. Applicants who wish to transfer into the College will be considered for admission after they complete the application process. Transfer students follow the same application schedule as all other students in applying for admission to the College.
Academic credit is generally accepted only from institutions that are accredited by one of the regional institutional accrediting organizations. The Dean of Nursing and Health Sciences and/or the Registrar must approve transfer credit. Only those credits that are applicable to the student's curriculum at the College will be accepted for transfer. All transfer credit will be equated to semester hours of credit. All transcripts become the official property of the College and will not be returned or issued to another institution.
Credit that is acceptable for transfer will not impact the student's cumulative grade point average at the College. The student's transcript will indicate the institutions where the approved transfer courses were taken and the semester hours that were earned. Transfer credit is indicated on the College transcript as credit (CR). Only courses with a grade of C or above (2.0 GPA on a 4.0 scale) will be considered for transfer credit.
To receive credit for previous college coursework from regionally accredited institutions, advanced placement exams (AP), CLEP and DSST exams, official transcripts must be submitted to the Registrar's Office for evaluation. Applicants may be required to take a proficiency exam to determine the transferable academic credits from non-accredited sources.
It is very important that you start the transfer process early! Even if you are just beginning your post-secondary education and do not plan to transfer to Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences for a few years, it is never too early to begin the planning.
In fact, Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences admission representatives can provide you with a suggested plan of study so you know exactly what courses to take at another institution. This will ensure you transfer the maximum number of credits into the programs at Trinity College of Nursing & Health Sciences.
