Nightingale College welcomes learners from a wide variety of backgrounds, learning experiences and institutions of higher learning. Because Nightingale College encourages learners to achieve their professional and academic dreams as efficiently as possible, we accept many general education (GE) and technical courses completed at an institution of higher learning that has been accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), or certain non-U.S. institutions of higher learning.
Nightingale college realizes success in college takes time, money and planning; therefore, we have created a Transfer Credit Guide compiled from the most commonly transferred courses. The Transfer Guide content is not inclusive and is frequently updated with new institutions and courses. If an institution or course is not listed on the Transfer Guide, it does not necessarily mean that it will be approved for transfer. The only way to know if your courses will transfer is to request an evaluation by completing the Transfer Credit Evaluation Form.
All requests for transfer credits must be made using the Transfer Credit Evaluation Form. Submit a completed Transfer Credit Evaluation Form to the Coordinator, General Education. The process of determining transferability of credits may take up to two weeks, so plan accordingly.

Coursework Completed at Non-U.S. Institutions of Higher Learning
The College will evaluate coursework completed at non-U.S. institutions of higher learning for transfer of credit based on the criteria described in the Transfer of Credit section of the Catalog. In order for the transfer of credit to be considered, learners must submit official coursework equivalency evaluations and official transcripts, English translations, completed by a certified transcript translation and evaluation service.
Extra-Institutional and Non-Instructional Learning
Recognizing that learning occurs in extra-institutional and non-instructional settings, the College evaluates and awards appropriate undergraduate level credit for such learning through use of nationally recognized, nontraditional learning testing programs acknowledged in the ACE Guide to Educational Credit by Examination. These examinations include AP, CLEP, DLPT, DSST, and ECE.
