Transfer Credit Policy

  1. Students who received transfer credit in one or more of the required pre-requisite courses (ENG 101, PSY 100, BIO 425) have the option to request, one time only during the first semester of enrollment, removal of transfer credit in one or more of the required pre-requisite courses. Students must first see the Academic Advisor in the nursing department (S742) to be advised regarding the current GPA in the required pre-requisite course for entrance into the Nursing Program. Students may then make the request for removal of transfer credit in the required pre-requisite courses in the Admissions Office (S310). The decision to remove transfer credit in required pre-requisite courses is not reversible. The New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) may not cover a repeated required pre-requisite course.
  2. Transfer students are held to the same criteria as all other students applying to the Nursing Program. The inclusion of grades earned in the required pre-requisite courses ensures equal standing among all students applying for admission into the Nursing Program. Transfer students must ensure that the BMCC Office of Admissions has accepted their transfer credits. Students who are requesting credit to be applied to the Nursing curriculum must also submit transcripts from former colleges to the Academic Advisor in the Department of Nursing.
  3. Transfer grades in English 101, Psychology 100, and Anatomy and Physiology 1 will be computed into the average of the required pre-requisite courses. A transferred grade of "C" in all three courses will make the student automatically ineligible for entry into the Nursing Program.
  4. The college will grant credit for ENG 101 to students who receive a score of 4 or 5 on Advance Placement (AP) in English. However, the nursing department cannot accept ENG 101 or PSY 100 without a letter grade of "C" or better, since the department computes the letter grade into the the average of the required pre-requisite courses as part of the criteria for determining the eligibility for the Nursing Program.
  5. A grade of "D" is not transferable into the Nursing Program, although it is transferable into the College. Therefore, if a grade of "D" in a required pre-requisite course is transferred into the College for credit, the student is automatically ineligible for entry into the Nursing Program.
