Transferring nursing students are students who have been enrolled in a nursing program regardless of whether they are currently enrolled in their previous program.

The nursing courses to be transferred into Tusculum University will be evaluated for transfer credit on an individual basis.  A grade of “C” or better is required for all accepted transferred nursing courses.  Nursing courses will not be accepted for transfer if they were completed three or more years from the date of enrollment in the nursing program; courses older than three years will have to be repeated.

Transferring nursing students who wish to transfer from another nursing program may do so on a seat available basis only if they have not failed or dropped more than one previous nursing course or have not failed/repeated one course twice or earned grades lower than a “C” for two or more nursing courses.  Transferring nursing students must meet all Tusculum University and Nursing Program admission requirements.  In addition to applying for admission to Tusculum University , nursing students must submit a nursing admission application, a letter of good standing from the dean/director of their previous nursing program and an official transcript to the University .  Nursing students may be asked to provide the Dean with copies of previous nursing course syllabi.

Acceptance of transfer and substitute credits in nursing to meet requirements of the curriculum will be determined by the Dean. A student who transfers into the nursing program at Tusculum University will be required to repeat any nursing or other required courses which are not considered comparable to the Tusculum University Nursing Program curriculum or in which the grade earned is lower than a “C.” Transfer students must meet the same standards as other students in the program.
