Admission for Transfer Students
Transfer students must have at least 12 hours of transferable credit with a 2.5 GPA (out of 4.0) in order to be considered for admission. (If you have less than 12 hours of transferable credit, you're considered a first-year student and must submit high school transcripts and an ACT or SAT score.)
- North Park accepts up to 60 credits from a two-year college or 90 credits from a four-year college.
- Our rolling admission process means you may apply anytime throughout the year.
- Transfer students may begin at North Park in late August or early January.
- Or consider summer-school courses, which begin in mid-May and don't require University admission.
High school students who have earned dual credit (college and high school) may bring credit to North Park and may be considered transfer students under certain conditions.
To study nursing at North Park, you must first be admitted to the University. After you are enrolled and taking classes, you must complete a subsequent application for admission to the School of Nursing. Admission into the nursing program requires a minimum transfer GPA of 2.75 (out of 4.0) for consideration, plus a passing grade on the ATI Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS).
