Credit Transfer

The following are general guidelines. Prior to admission, School of Nursing Office of Student Services personnel review transcripts to determine which credit transfers. Upon admission to the RN-BSN Track, academic advisors assist in determining which courses are necessary for the student's program of study.

  • Credit earned from regionally accredited colleges or universities is transferable.
     
  • Transfer credit is assigned only for courses in which the student has earned a grade of "C" or higher.
     
  • Generally, an equivalent number of credit hours are given.
     
  • In some cases, credit may be transferable to the University, but may not be applied toward completion of the Nursing Program.
     
  • Remedial, audited, or non-credit courses do not transfer. This may include courses that apply credit towards graduation at the source institution, if they are determined to be equivalent to remedial courses at ISU.
     
  • College living, orientation, and study classes will transfer for credit if they received credit towards graduation at the source institution.
     
  • Up to 90 credit hours of total transfer credit will be accepted for transfer into a bachelor degree program; at least 30 credit hours must be completed through ISU to earn the bachelor degree.
