Prospective Transfer Students

Nursing Transfer Admission Overview 

The Nursing Program at Clemson University accepts 10 Transfer students for enrollment in each Fall semester.  We do not accept Transfer students directly into Nursing for Spring or Summer semester admission.  Transfer students should apply between August 1st and December 1st for admission in the following Fall semester. The general University application deadlines for Transfer students does not apply to Nursing, as it a limited Admissions program.  Students who have completed 30+ credit hours by the time of application will be competitive for these ten transfer spaces. 

Transfer Students are expected to complete the first two years of Clemson's Nursing curriculum by the end of their first semester of enrollment and are placed in the clinical nursing courses in the Spring semester following the Fall enrollment.  Ideally, students will have completed all science courses and the strong majority of general education courses within the first two years of the Nursing program by the fall they intend to enroll at Clemson University. Please refer to the Nursing Curriculum Plan for Nursing Transfer Students.

Once accepted, Transfer students will have their transfer credits formally evaluated as part of the transfer admissions process.  Transfer students may use the Transfer Equivalency list link Transfer Credit Equivalency List (TCEL) to informally evaluate their own transfer credits.  Transfer students should also use the Nursing Curriculum worksheet, in conjunction with the TCEL, to determine the courses completed in the Nursing curriculum.
