Transfer of Credit Policy

Students may transfer up to three hours of post-masters credit taken at a college or university that is accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by both the U.S. Department of Education (ED) and the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) provided:

  • The course is clearly comparable to one of the DNP course offerings based on course description and learning outcomes.
  • The course is at the 600 or higher numbering system and was not part of the master's degree requirements.
  • A grade of “B” or higher was earned in the course.
  • The course was completed within the past five years.
  • The course reflects current knowledge and best practice.
  • The course reflects higher order thinking, study, and assessment requirements of the scholarship of discovery.
  • Courses containing clinical content may not be met by transfer (Advanced Healthcare Policy, Global Healthcare, and all DNP Professional Project courses).

Credit hours accepted in transfer are recorded as part of the student's official academic record. Once transcripts (and other test scores and academic documents) have been received, IWU is not permitted to release copies of those documents back to the student or any other party.
