Transfer Policy
The transfer policy applies to students desiring to transfer between ACCS institutions. The Coastal
Alabama nursing program follows the same criteria for requests outside ACCS institutions. Students
complete the nursing program at the campus for which the student was admitted. No transfer is allowed
between campuses except in extenuating circumstances, i.e. a student who begins the program at
Monroeville may not transfer to Bay Minette after completion of the first semester. Criteria for transfer
are as follows:
1. Must meet minimum admission standards for the nursing program.
2. Must possess a grade of C or better in all nursing program required courses taken at another
institution and possess a minimum of a 2.0 cumulative GPA at time of transfer.
3. Must provide a letter of eligibility for progression from the Dean/Director of previous nursing
4. Must comply with all program policy requirements at accepting institution.
5. Must complete at least 25% of the nursing program required courses for degree/certificate at the
accepting institution.
6. Must meet acceptability criteria for placement at clinical agencies for clinical experience.
7. The last nursing course in which a student was enrolled cannot be more than 12 months old.
8. Acceptance of transfer students into nursing programs is limited by the number of faculty and
clinical facilities available. Meeting minimal standards does not guarantee acceptance.
9. Student selection for transfer is based on GPA in nursing program required courses.
