Transferability of Credits

Hondros College of Nursing cannot guarantee the transferability of credits earned at any other institution. Determinations on the transferability of credits are made by the receiving institution.

Transfer Credit Policy

Official evaluation of transfer credit will be conducted upon receipt of an official transcript. Official transcripts must be delivered in a sealed envelope or sent electronically through a certified credentialing agency from the original institution. Official transcripts should be received no later than the end of week one (1) of the program for evaluation. Hondros College of Nursing cannot guarantee evaluation of transfer credit for transcripts received later than week one (1) of the program. Transcripts will be evaluated from institutions that are accredited by accrediting bodies recognized by the United States Department of Education. Questions regarding the Transfer Credit policy should be directed to the Office of the Registrar.
