St. Scholastica has been welcoming transfer students into its nursing program for years. The Department of Nursing is committed to being responsive to the needs of transfer students.
In the past few years, there has been a national and statewide increase in the number of students interested in nursing. Accordingly, the competition among students for acceptance into nursing programs, including St. Scholastica, has risen. The following information details the selection process for transfer students entering the nursing program.
The nursing major accepts 112 students into each class, and 20 seats are reserved for transfer students having earned less than 48 semester credits at the College. Transfer students who complete 48 or more credits at the College compete for one of 92 seats available based on their CSS GPA.
The following criteria are used to rank-order transfer students for selection into one of the 20 reserved seats of the nursing program. The criteria are listed in order of importance:
If completed at St. Scholastica, a grade of 'C' or higher is required. If transferred, a grade of 'B' or higher is required.
