Transfer Students

Hiram admits transfer students for fall (August) and spring (January) semesters, including those students interested in enrolling in the Nursing Program. Transfer applicants should submit an application no later than July 1 for fall semester and December 1 for spring semester. The Office of Admission accepts both the Hiram College Application and the Common Application (must submit all college transcripts and an essay to complete the application). Both are free. Students who have less than one year of full-time college credit are required to submit a Secondary School Report form, high school transcript, and scores on the ACT or SAT I Assessment.

Courses Hiram generally accepts for credit are those in which students have earned a "C" or better and which are comparable to courses offered at Hiram. No limit is placed on the number of credits which may be transferred to Hiram; however, students must complete a minimum of 60 semester hours (two years of full-time work) at Hiram to receive a degree.

Transfer credit evaluations are first completed by the Registrar's Office. Courses specific to those required in the nursing program curriculum often require additional evaluation by the Nursing Program Director and/or faculty associated with specific departments or courses of study. Students may be required to submit course descriptions and/or course syllabi for evaluation before previously earned credits are considered for transfer.

Each student will be advised accordingly as to what materials are required for additional review, or if additional coursework completion is required prior to enrolling in the Hiram College Nursing Program. The Hiram College Department of Nursing has compiled a database containing transferrable courses pertinent to the nursing curriculum, which have already been subjected to review by the Nursing Program Director and/or department head or professor for specific courses of study. This database will undergo revision as needed to keep information accurate and current.
