Course Transfer Policy for Matriculated Students

Background: The graduate faculty of TCNJ’s Department of Nursing is committed to providing a rigorous and coherent course of study. As our curriculum is carefully planned and coordinated, taking courses at outside institutions places students at risk of missing critical content and does not allow for full immersion in the TCNJ academic experience. Therefore students may not take courses at outside institutions and then transfer the credit to TCNJ.

Exceptions will be considered for extenuating circumstances (e.g. severe health concerns) when the student finds an equivalent course. No transfer credit will be given for clinical courses under any circumstances. The student must get prior approval from the Graduate Coordinator to take the course. In accordance with TCNJ policies, a student may not transfer more than 6 – 9 credits depending on the graduate program. (please see TCNJ Graduate Bulletin).
