  • which are determined to be equivalent in contact/credit hours, content, and academic level to those required in the student’s program at Stanbridge College.

To request an evaluation of their previous coursework for possible transfer credit, students must provide the Registrar with an official transcript of record before the beginning of their program at Stanbridge College. The official transcript of record must be:

  • for which a grade “C” or better was earned; and
  • which are determined to be equivalent in credit hours, content, and academic level as those required in the student’s program at Stanbridge College

Students will not be required to take an examination to determine whether transfer credit will be granted, however, if transfer credit is granted, a student may be tested to determine whether specific deficiencies still exist that require remediation.

If a student chooses to decline credit for any course for which the student is eligible to receive transfer credit, the student will document the declination of credit on the “Declination of Equivalent Credit” form to be filed in the student’s record. The student must accept or decline transfer credit before commencing the program for which transfer credit was requested.

Competency-based credit will be granted on the basis of a written examination for theory courses and a demonstration of the mastery of clinical objectives and a written examination for clinical courses. Each student requesting credit for previous work experience will meet with the Director of Nursing, who will describe the specific tasks, work environment, and timeframes for the written examination for theory courses and the written examination and demonstration of mastery of clinical objectives for clinical courses. The amount of credit which is granted will be determined on a case-by-case basis and documented in the student's record. Prior to taking written examinations or demonstrating mastery of clinical objectives to determine whether competency-based credit can be granted, students will be charged a one-time, non-refundable fee of $50 for each written examination and a one-time, nonrefundable fee of $100 for each demonstration of the mastery of clinical objectives.

Official Transcript Requirements

Official transcripts can be mailed directly from a school or delivered in person by the student and must be sent or given to the Registrar of Stanbridge College. To be considered official, a transcript must be received by the Registrar in an envelope with an unbroken seal, and the transcript must bear the official seal and/or signature of the Registrar of the school sending the transcript. For military veterans, the DD214 and accompanying documentation will serve as a transcript for the evaluation of a course of study or training in the Armed Forces. Under no circumstances will an unofficial transcript be accepted for evaluation of possible transfer credit.
