Transfer Students

Clemson University School of Nursing StudetsThe 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 Aug. 1 and Dec. 1 for admission in the following fall semester. The general university application deadlines for transfer students does not apply to nursing, as it is a limited admissions program. Students who have completed 30-plus 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 Credit Equivalency List to informally evaluate their own transfer credits. Transfer students should also use the Nursing Curriculum worksheet, in conjunction with the equivalency list, to determine the courses completed in the nursing curriculum.

Arranging a Visit 
Contact the designated advisor to try to arrange a meeting. Visits can be arranged from 8 a.m.-4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday (except weekends and University holidays) as the advisor schedule allows. Meetings are typically 30 minutes and will include an overview of the department and admissions information specific to Nursing.  Advisors are not able to evaluate credit prior to a student being accepted to Clemson University.  Students should use the transfer credit equivalency list to determine course transfer.
