  • The School of Nursing will transfer up to 61 credit hours of applicable courses. 
  • Transfer credit is entered on the official college transcript.  Grades received for transfer courses are not shown, nor are they included in the calculation of cumulative GPA at CNR.
  • The candidate must also be in good standing at the institution in which he or she is currently or was most recently enrolled. 
  • Transfer students may be required to take the placement examinations in writing and reading.
