2013-2014 Catalog


Transfer of Credit Policy - Graduate Studies in Nursing

The university may allow a maximum of nine credits in transfer to the graduate nursing programs. Transfer of credit will be determined by the Chair of the Division of Graduate Studies in Nursing or designee.

Credit is granted for work with a satisfactory grade (“C” or above) taken at an approved college or university accredited at the same level, provided the courses are applicable to the curriculum the student wishes to pursue at Indiana Wesleyan University. An “approved college or university” generally refers to those institutions that are accredited by a regional accrediting body or the Association for Biblical Higher Education.

The University Registrar is responsible for approving the transferability of all credits. Credit hours accepted in transfer are recorded, but quality points and grades are omitted. All credits are accepted as semester credits. Quarter credits are converted to semester credits using the two-thirds conversion ratio.

Transcripts from foreign institutions - are sent to an outside agency for evaluation and determination of transferable credits, degrees, and GPA. Students are responsible for the initiation of this evaluation and for any fees incurred during the process. Applications for this service are available to the student through the university.
