Credit Transfer Policies
Transfer credit must be approved prior to the start of the term.
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.
Goldfarb School of Nursing at Barnes-Jewish College has articulation agreements in place with the following institutions:
All official transcripts must be issued by the awarding body; no credit will be awarded for grades or scores reported on the transcripts of other institutions or organizations. Credits accepted in transfer are posted to the Barnes-Jewish College transcript and are included in the cumulative hours but are not included in the cumulative grade point average.
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.
