Transfer of Credits – Bachelor's Degrees

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing and the Bachelor of Science in Healthcare Administration programs at Labouré College require students to complete arts and sciences credits beyond the associate degree level. Students may transfer courses from other accredited academic institutions to meet some of the requirements, provided they meet the following conditions: 

  • Statistics: One 3-credit course at any level either with a grade of C or higher. If taken as part of an associate degree program, MAT 3410 is waived and the student may take an elective instead. If the course was not counted toward an associate degree, then it may be transferred for credit toward the BSN or healthcare administration degree.
  • Ethics: One 3-credit course at any level either with a grade of C or higher. If taken as part of an associate degree program, ETH 3210 is waived and the student may take an elective instead. If the course was not counted toward an associate degree, then it may be transferred for credit toward the BSN or healthcare administration degree.
  • Arts and Sciences Electives: Up to 18 credits in the humanities, social sciences and/or natural sciences beyond the associate degree. Six credits may be transferred from the introductory level but at least 6 credits must be at the level equivalent to or higher than a 2000-level Labouré course. A minimum grade of C is required. 
  • Capstone: The Senior Capstone project in non-transferable. It must be completed in residence.

Students may fulfill up to 18 of the required arts and sciences credits through the transfer process. They may meet the statistics and ethics requirements through transfer or in residence. All students are required to complete their Senior Capstone project in residence.

Transfer of courses in the professional core of each program will be evaluated on an individual basis by the program director or division chairperson.
