Hope College Nursing Application Information for Transfer Students

Transfer students must complete 12 credits at Hope College before applying to the Nursing Program. Students enrolled at Hope College for 2 semesters are no longer considered a transfer student.

One of the Hope courses must be Bio 103, Bio 221, Bio 222, Bio 231, or Chem 103. If all of these courses were completed by transfer credit, then NURS 260 or NURS 320 must be completed prior to being considered for admission into the nursing major.

The number of transfer students will be limited to 10% per semester but not to exceed 10% of total admissions per year. The number of transfer students admitted each semester/year may be less than 10% based on the admission process and the discretion of the Student Admissions and Progression Committee.
