Transferring to GSC

Transfer Credit

Good Samaritan College acknowledges courses taken at other post-secondary institutions may qualify for transfer, but the college reserves the right to determine the acceptability of transfer credits in accord with its mission and goals. As a rule the following guidelines are followed, but these are not all-inclusive when considering awarding transfer credit at Good Samaritan College:

  1. Courses taken at any post - secondary institution accredited by one of the six regional accrediting associations, provided the completed courses carry a grade of C (2.0) or better.
  2. Courses taken at a post-secondary institution of higher education not accredited by one of the six regional accrediting associations will be considered on an individual basis through course to course validation.
  3. Military credit will transfer if appropriate to the requirements of the curriculum plan for the program in which the student is enrolled.
  4. The time limit for courses eligible for transfer is 10 years. Exceptions can be made by the Registrar’s Office in consultation with appropriate department chairs
  5. Transfer credits do not carry a grade and are not included in the cumulative grade point average of the college.
  6. When a student waives their right to a transfer course, they are held accountable for the course taken at Good Samaritan College. If a failure results in that course, it must be repeated at Good Samaritan College.
  7. Upon enrollment students who wish to complete additional transfer work must get approval in advance from Dean of Academics using the Off Campus Course Approval paperwork.RESTRICTIONS INCLUDE:
    • Students are not ordinarily permitted to take courses elsewhere when space is available at GSC.
    • Students approved to take courses off-campus will be required to take courses at institutions within the GCCCU consortium.
    • Students taking courses off campus must be in good academic standing.
    • Credits not pre-approved will not be considered for transfer.

Credit by Examination

Good Samaritan College also grants credit, on a limited basis, for the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) of the College Entrance Examination Board. Students must meet the American Council on Education (ACE) recommended credit-granting scores in order to earn the credit. If the CLEP score is below the recommended score, the student may not retake the CLEP for credit.

Advanced Placement

Good Samaritan College grants advanced placement and college credit for appropriate courses to entering students who have earned a score of 3 or better on the Advance Placement (AP) exam from the College Board.

Nursing Credit for BSN Students

Successful completion of the NCLEX-RN, the national licensing examination will serve as validation that prospective students have successfully met the learning outcomes for pre-licensure nursing and pharmacological math coursework. Thirty-six hours of pre-licensure nursing course along with one hour of pharmacological math credit will be awarded to students for successful completion of the NCLEX-RN.

Transfer Module

The Articulation and Transfer Module Guidelines of the Ohio Board of Regents provide a template for students to acquire foundational learning experiences that will assure their ability to succeed in upperdivision course work. Each college and university in the state of Ohio establishes a transfer module, which identifies the general education requirements of the institution.
