Internal Transfer Procedure

The high demand and large number of students seeking to transfer into the Nursing major, combined with a limited number of spaces and our desire to fairly offer students the opportunity to apply, has made it necessary to implement the following policy effective January 1, 2006.

Criteria for transfer:

Overall GPA of 3.0 at time of application for transfer into Nursing

Science GPA of 3.0 (including successful completion of at least one science course at TCNJ)

Applicant must have completed at least one of the following Foundation Courses and achieve a minimum grade of


NUR 110, Unitary Man and Environment (priority prerequisite for sophomore level applicants) PSY 101, Psychology

Admission will be based on the above criteria and the number of spaces available. Applications will be accepted once per year after grades are posted at the end of the Spring semester, but not later than June 1. If accepted, Internal Transfer applicants will be admitted into the Nursing Major for entry the following Fall semester. Students who are not accepted may apply again the following year and will be given priority as long as they meet eligibility criteria.

To be admitted as a sophomore level Nursing major, applicants must have completed the following pre-requisite courses with minimum grade in parentheses:  NUR 110 (B), BIO 141 and 142, Anatomy & Physiology I & II (C+), CHE 111, Biochemistry (C-), and BIO 144, Microbiology (C-).
