Transfer Admission Requirements

Internal Transfers
  • Score of proficient or above on the TEAS V exam;
  • Meet all progression requirements to begin the nursing sequence in the fall of the year requesting admission;
  • Overall GPA of 2.67
  • All prerequisites must have a grade of B- or better
  • submit a letter of request, addressed to psu-aprnursing@plymouth.edu, addressed to the chair of the APR committee, by May 1st of the year requesting admission.

The Department of Nursing Admission, Progression & Retention Committee will review all transfer applications. Selection is based on:

  1. Space available, according to the following priority order:
    • Students returning from an approved leave of absence (LOA)
    • Change of major students and PSU alumni (internal transfer)
    • External transfer applicants
    • Students applying for readmission
  2. Meeting all progression requirements is required to enter the third nursing semester (see nursing curriculum).
  3. If two or more students meet all progression requirements equally, admission will be based firstly on cumulative GPA in all prerequisite science courses taken, and secondly on the TEAS V score.
  4. Internal transfer students can request to be placed on a waiting list for the fall semester in the year they applied.

Applicants will be notified by June 15th of the committee’s decision. Wait listed students will be notified as spaces become available up until the fall add/drop period closes in the year they applied.
