The Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.)/Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Program may elect to accept transfer students. Transfer students must apply to the program and, if qualified, must participate in an admissions interview. Any requests for consideration of transfer credit must be provided in writing by the student prior to the interview or by no later than September 1st. Supporting documents such as course syllabi must also accompany this request. Please note that advanced pharmacology, advanced physiology/pathophysiology, advanced physical health assessment, practicum coursework and tandem didactic courses associated with the practicum courses, in addition to skills-based intensives will not be considered for transfer credit. The Admissions Committee must approve all transfer students and will determine the number of graduate transfer credits granted (not to exceed 8 credits). 

Transfer students are not accepted during the clinical phase of the program.  Also, please note that transfer students/credits are not accepted into the Post-Master’s Certificate/Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Track.
