Transfer Credit Policy

  • Courses completed with a grade of 2.0 (C) or higher are eligible for transfer credit.
  • A maximum of 68 credits may be transferred from two-year institutions.
    • A maximum of 90 credits can be allowed for transfer from a four – year institution except for the BBA in Business Studies which allows a maximum of 75 transfer credits.
  • Please note that there are the maximum number of credits that a transfer student can potential receive. However, not all transfer credits may count toward your intended degree due to major requirements.

To see which credits from previous institutions may be accepted for transfer credit, use our Transfer Credit Equivalencies web tool. Please note: courses not found in this database may be transferable once an evaluation of the course descriptions and/or syllabi is completed upon a student's application and admission to the University.

Other sources of transfer credit:

Pace will accept credit from institutions accredited by a regional affiliate of the Commission of Higher Education (e.g. The Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools). However, other sources of credit include the following:

  • Credit completed at institutions not regionally accredited with the approval of the appropriate chairpersons and dean
  • Results of acceptable performance on standardized proficiency examinations
  • CLEP exams

How does the Course Evaluation Process work?

The Pace Online Admission Committee will collaborate with the chairperson of each academic department to review your transcripts and evaluate which courses meet the above requirements for credit. This evaluation process typically takes 2-3 weeks.
Occasionally, course descriptions and course syllabi are required. If so, this will be noted on the Transfer Credit Evaluation (TCE) sheet that you will receive once admitted. (Note: Course descriptions will be required for all courses completed outside of the United States.) You should provide these documents as soon as possible to expedite the course evaluation process.
If additional courses are completed after admission, these will also be considered for credit upon submission of an updated transcript. Should additional credit be awarded, you will receive an updated Transfer Credit Evaluation Worksheet.

Area hospitals strongly prefer RNs with a Bachelor's in Nursing.

The RN/BS program is designed for nurses with an Associate Degree or Diploma. This 100% online program can help you succeed based on:

  • Instruction by the same expert Pace Nursing faculty as traditional on-campus students
  • Cutting edge evidence-based theory courses linked to your clinical practice
  • Individualized clinical practice experiences for students to meet the essentials of a BSN education for professional nursing practice
  • Unique opportunities to take up to 9 credits at the graduate level and to obtain credit for professional certification
  • No entrance exams required.
If you are an RN with a bachelor's degree in a field other than nursing, you have the following options:
  • Enroll in the Pace Online BS in Nursing Completion Program and obtain a 2nd bachelor's degree.
  • Enroll in our RN Master's Bridge Program, which will provide you with the equivalent coursework for a BSN and prepare you to matriculate into one of our graduate nursing programs. (Recommended)
