Transfer Credits

BHSN welcomes applicants who have attended accredited institutions of higher education.  Official transcripts must be received at BHSN no later than the second week of the student’s freshman fall semester, for transfer courses to be evaluated.  Students may transfer any number of courses, however, to be eligible for the Fisher College Associate in Science Degree, the student is required to complete a minimum of 30 credits through Fisher College (see Associate in Science Degree Candidate section).  Students may be required to submit a catalogue and/or course syllabus from each college attended.  Online courses will not be accepted for transfer. Once a student has been accepted to BHSN and paid their Registration Fee, no additional courses from other institutions will be acceptable for transfer, with the exception of currently enrolled course(s).

College-level courses with a C+ grade or higher, an equitable course credit and the academic equivalents of the following Fisher College Courses will be considered for transfer:

  • Human Anatomy and Physiology I* – 4 credits

Transfer students are required to fulfill the same diploma requirements as any other student.
Transcript Request

Student transcripts may be obtained from the Assistant Registrar upon completion of a Transcript Request Form.   A transcript fee of $5.00 must be paid in advance for each subsequent official or unofficial transcript.    No transcript of a student, former student or graduate will be furnished for any person whose financial obligations to BHSN have not been satisfied.  High school records are not included and only transfer credits accepted by BHSN appear on the transcript.  Two weeks are required for processing transcript requests.  Unofficial transcripts may be requested and will be stamped “Unofficial Student Transcript”.  BHSN accepts no responsibility for accuracy of such transcripts once they have been issued.  Official Transcripts will be furnished upon request in a sealed Registration Stamped envelope, which is stamped  indicating that an Official Transcript is enclosed and is void if open.
