If there is something that you have taken that you do not see listed, you can request for it to be reviewed for acceptance through the Transferology program. Reviewing this information will help you to anticipate what may be transferred in toward the programs here and to plan coursework that you may want to continue to take before you are accepted or enrolled at the college.  Set up a free account on Transferology now.



Off-Campus Course Restrictions for GSC Students

Once students are admitted to Good Samaritan College, they are required to take the remainder of their coursework at the college. Off campus coursework for enrolled students is only approved in very limited situations where something is not available on campus and is required for degree requirements.

Students who begin coursework at Good Samaritan College must meet the residency requirement of general education coursework for graduation. These requirements can be reviewed in the Requirements for Graduation Policy in Consumer Information.

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:

  • 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.
  • Military credit will transfer if appropriate to the requirements of the curriculum plan for the program in which the student is enrolled.
  • 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. Note: for the RN to BSN program, there is no time limits on credit transfer.
  • Transfer credits do not carry a grade and are not included in the cumulative grade point average of the college.
  • 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.


  • Students are not ordinarily permitted to take courses elsewhere when space is available at GSC.
  • 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 does not grant credit for the College- Level Examination Program (CLEP) of the College Entrance Examination 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 coursework. Other courses may be satisfied by successful transfer of courses from previous institutions. Good Samaritan College’s BSN program requires 120 credits.


The Good Samaritan College campus is located in Good Samaritan Hospital, part of the TriHealth medical system.
