Course Recency Requirement Credit Transfer Waiver
If a general education course exceeds the time frame transfer requirement, the prospective learner may request to take a waiver exam to assess his/her current knowledge in a specific subject, if available. If the minimum passing score of 80% is achieved for the individual course exam, the College may waive the course recency requirement and accept the academic credit.
Block Credit Transfer Waiver
Learners who hold a baccalaureate degree from an institution of higher learning accredited by an accrediting 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, may request a block transfer to fulfil the general education requirements of the Program.
Note: Human Anatomy, Human Physiology, Pathophysiology, and Statistics are required general education courses and may not be waived under the Block Credit Transfer.
Final Grade of “C” Credit Transfer Waiver
If a grade of “C” was earned in an otherwise acceptable general education course, the prospective learner may request to take a waiver exam to assess his/her current knowledge in a specific subject, if available. If the minimum passing score of 80% is achieved for the individual course exam, the College may waive the minimum grade requirement and accept the academic credit.
Note: Nightingale College is committed to ensuring the highest level of academic integrity throughout the admissions process. Violations of the academic integrity policy at any point in the admissions process will result in automatic denial of admission.
