The Doctor of Nursing Practice (D.N.P.) program may elect to accept transfer students. Transfer students must apply to the program and, if qualified, must participate in an admission interview. The Admissions Committee must approve all transfer students and will determine the number of graduate transfer credits granted (not to exceed 12 credits).  

Transfer students are not accepted during the residency phase of the program.
