Admission Information for Transfer Students
Transfer Students - TCU defines a transfer student as a student who has been out of high school for at least one full semester and has attempted college or university work elsewhere for credit. Admission to TCU does not guarantee admission to nursing clinical or the accelerated sequence.
Individuals who plan to apply as transfer students are urged to contact the TCU Admission Office and TCU Nursing program in order to receive current information. The number of new transfer students admitted to each semester is determined by the availability of faculty, facilities, and the number of qualified continuing TCU students. Selection of transfer students for initial entry into the nursing coursework is based upon indicators of the applicant's likelihood of success in the nursing program and in professional practice.
