Transfer Student Information and Instructions

Transfer Student Information and Instructions

Thank you for your interest in the McNeese College of Nursing. If you are transferring to McNeese from another university/college the following guidelines will help you begin the admission process:

  1. All transfer students must apply to McNeese State University and receive unconditional acceptance to the University prior to the College of Nursing performing a transcript evaluation.
    • If you need to download an application to the University, please see the Admissions website.
    • Once you receive your acceptance letter from McNeese State University's Admission Office, contact the Nursing Student Services Coordinator at (337) 475-5048. More detailed instructions regarding advisement will be given at the time of contact.
  2. Transfer students that pursue our Associate Degree of Nursing (ADN) must complete a minimum of 9 hours of coursework at McNeese to be eligible to apply for clinicals. Clinical applications for our Associate Degree of Nursing are only available during a Fall semester.
  3. Transfer students that pursue our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) must complete a minimum of 12 hours of coursework at McNeese to be eligible to apply for clinicals. Clinical applications for our Bachelor of Science in Nursing are available in both the Fall and Spring semesters.
  4. Transfer students must provide the College of Nursing with copies of their transcript(s). Copies forwarded to the College of Nursing may be unofficial; however, transcripts submitted to the MSU Admissions' Office must be official. The College of Nursing may request course descriptions directly from the student to assist with determining transferability of courses.
  5. Transfer students that attended another university or college within the state of Louisiana may find the Louisiana Board of Regents' Articulation website helpful when determining the transferability of general education and science coursework. You may view the Board of Regents' Transfer Matrices.
  6. Transfer students must be in compliance with the McNeese State University College of Nursing eligibility requirements and Retention/Progression policies.
    • The Undergraduate Nursing Degree Program Head will make final decisions relevant to the transferability of coursework, and the eligibility of transfer students, on a case by case basis.
    • The College of Nursing reserves the right to limit the number of students to be admitted to the nursing courses based on faculty and clinical resources. A waiting list may be initiated as needed, with the priority of admission determined by the number of required nursing pre-requisite hours completed at McNeese, as well as the number of required nursing pre-requisite transfer hours completed. All required non-nursing course work must be completed by the end of the semester in which the clinical application is filed.
  7. For more detailed information on our programs and degree plans, please refer to our website.
