A student may request credit for postsecondary courses successfully completed at another institution by submitting a written request to the Weimar Institute Registrar. The process is outlined as follows:
- The student will submit official transcripts and course descriptions from the educational institution awarding units for the courses the student desires to transfer. The educational institution must be accredited by an accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or acknowledged by an agency regarded as satisfactory by the Weimar Institute Nursing Program curriculum committee and program chair. Transfer units will be evaluated to ensure that they adhere to high academic standards and to allow equivalent classes to satisfy specific courses required by Weimar Institute. Courses that do not have a direct correlation to classes offered by Weimar Institute may be accepted as elective units if approved by the Academic Standards Committee. Weimar Institute reserves the right to accept or reject units learned at other institutions.
- The subject content of the course(s) the student desires to transfer must be similar to the core required course(s). Credit for courses in the Science requirements of the Associate Degree Nursing program must have been granted to the student within seven years of the Registrar’s receipt of the student’s written request.
- The number of units the student desires to transfer must be equal to the same number of required semester unit hours for a given course as delineated in the course outline located in the Nursing Program Student Handbook. Weimar Institute will determine if the number of units of a prior course is equal to a minimum of the same semester hours as required by Weimar Institute.
- The courses the student desires to transfer must be successfully completed with a minimum of a grade of “C” or better (2.0 on a 4.0 scale). College courses from the humanities must have been completed within the last 10 years. College courses from the sciences must have been completed within the last 5 years.
