Transfer Policy from Other Schools of Nursing
Transfer students must meet the requirements for admission to the university as outlined in the most current Cumberland University Catalog and for the School of Nursing as found in both the Cumberland University Catalog and the current School of Nursing Student Handbook. Students who desire to transfer from an accredited baccalaureate-nursing program and have never made a D or F in a nursing course will be evaluated on an individual basis by the Nursing Admission & Progression Committee to determine placement.
Any student who has previously attended another nursing program and is admitted to the Cumberland University School of Nursing with a final course grade of a “D” or lower in two or more nursing courses will be evaluated by the Nursing Admission & Progression Committee. Candidates who have earned a D or F in another nursing program MAY be admitted and allowed to restart at the beginning of the nursing curriculum but will be assessed as already having one (1) “D” or lower in a nursing course. Therefore, if the student receives another “D” or lower in ANY Nursing course at Cumberland University, the student will be dismissed from the program.
