Transfer Majors & Credit

Transfer Majors

To transfer into pre-nursing:
Please contact the Sinclair School of Nursing Advising Office at 573.882.0277 to inquire about transferring into pre-nursing.

To transfer out of pre-nursing:
Students need to contact the school or college they would like to transfer into. Transfers must be completed by a certain point each semester. See MU Dates and Deadlines.

Transfer of Credit From Other Colleges

Students may transfer a maximum of 60 semester hours of non-nursing coursework from accredited four-year institutions and community/junior colleges if equivalency is determined.  

All BSN students must send official transcripts to MU Admissions. RN to BSN students may send copies of unofficial transcripts to RN to BSN academic advisor for unofficial evaluation.

There is no time limit imposed on transferable courses.  Students transferring credit of more than 10 years are encouraged to assess their knowledge base in that subject and initiate a self-study program.  

Students already enrolled at the MU Sinclair School of Nursing who desire to enroll for required courses in another college or university must receive approval from the Associate Dean or undergraduate academic advisor before taking the course. It is the responsibility of the student to check with the college/school in which they intend to enroll regarding course availability.

If a course is approved for transfer, the student must request that a copy of the transcript be sent to the Admissions Office, 230 Jesse Hall, immediately upon completion of the course.

Traditional and Accelerated students transferring credit for Anatomy and Physiology I with lab receive credit for Human Anatomy only. The student then enrolls in MPP 3202 Physiology. Students who have completed Anatomy and Physiology I with lab and Anatomy and Physiology II with lab have satisfied both the anatomy and physiology requirements.   

Scheduling Appointments and Visits

Current MU students may schedule an academic advising appointment with an advisor by calling 573.882.0277 or stopping by S235 Sinclair School of Nursing. Appointments will not be scheduled over email.
