Transfer Guide

If you are looking to transfer to Goldfarb School of Nursing from a different institution, we want to ensure you have all of the resources you need to make the process as smooth as possible. Take a look at the following policies, processes and requirements to get started.


Credit Transfer Policies

Transfer credit must be approved prior to the start of the term.

BSN Programs

Students wishing to transfer credits into the BSN Program must receive approval from the program director, as credits are evaluated on an individual basis.

A maximum of nine (9) credit hours of undergraduate nursing course work may be applied as transfer credit and must be evaluated prior to starting the program. Transfer courses are not computed in the GPA.

DNP Graduate Programs

Students may transfer up to nine (9) credit hours toward their DNP coursework. Transfer credit is considered for courses taken elsewhere.

The following graduate courses must have been taken within five years of admission:

  • Advanced Pharmacology
  • Advanced Health Assessment
  • Advanced Pathophysiology

Work presented for transfer credit must be from an accredited college/university and is subject to evaluation in light of the degree requirements of the college. Transfer courses are not computed in the GPA.

The student must submit an official transcript to the DNP Program Director of the specific track they are applying to, and he/she must make a request for the transfer credit, demonstrating successful completion of the courses. A course syllabus must also be submitted. A grade of “B” or higher must have been earned in each course. The courses will be recorded on the student’s record to fulfill the program requirements.

Washington University Course Credit in the Healthcare Operational Excellence Program

Credit for previous courses completed in the Health Care Operational Excellence program at Washington University in St. Louis will be accepted and not considered transfer credit.

A maximum of 15 credit hours (5 courses) will be accepted for courses that are identical to the courses required in the DNP Health Systems & Population Health Leadership program, a partnership program with Washington University’s McKelvey School of Engineering.

The student must submit his/her transcripts to the DNP program director of the HSPHL track, demonstrating successful completion of each course. A grade of “B” or higher must have been earned in each course. The courses will be recorded on the student’s record to fulfill the program requirements.

Institution Transfer Guides

An articulation agreement is a formal agreement between schools matching required coursework and is designed to help students make a smooth transition when transferring.

In general, college-level courses completed at a regionally accredited institution with a grade of “C” or better will be eligible for transfer. Credit by examination may also be transferable provided the score meets established requirements.

In addition, Barnes-Jewish College reserves the right to place restrictions on particular courses regarding the age of the transfer credit.
