The RN-to-BSN Completion Program is designed for two types of students:
A student who has earned an Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) from a regionally accredited program and college, has an unencumbered nursing license to practice in Colorado, and has a minimum 2.5 GPA in nursing courses.
- CCCS policy (BP 9-71 Transfer Credit) Credit can only be transferred from “regional accrediting associations.”
We are unable to make exceptions to this rule.
- The sending institution must have been regionally accredited for the entire time the student was earning the applicable credits.
- Contact Laura O’Leary with further questions.
A student who has successfully completed their first semester of a regionally accredited ADN program and college, continues to be enrolled in an ADN program, and has a minimum 2.5 GPA in nursing courses.
Once admitted, students are prompted to complete the following:
- RN-to-BSN Acceptance Form
- Transcript evaluation
- This step only needs to be completed if you have unmet General Education Requirements and completed them at another institution.
- Courses will be evaluated on an individual basis (course-by-course) basis.
- General Education requirements will not automatically be waived if a bachelor's degree (or higher) has already been earned.
