Transfer Admission Process

Thank you for your interest in the Louise Herrington School of Nursing of Baylor University. Admission to the school of nursing is competitive. Transfer students are admitted in the Spring of each year. Applicants may complete their prerequisite courses through any regionally accredited college or university and transfer applicable courses into Baylor University. All students must meet minimum application requirements for admission consideration.

Students anticipating transfer to Baylor University to enter the nursing program should contact the Academic Advisor on the Dallas campus to discuss program fit and to initiate an individualized degree plan. Please follow these steps to aid in application to the Louise Herrington School of Nursing:

  1. Complete the Prospective Student Inquiry Form. (Students who have contacted Baylor University previously and have been assigned a Baylor Student ID number, please skip this step.)
  2. Use the Equivalent Course Tool to aid in determining whether a course will transfer into Baylor University from another college or university. Please contact Elaine Lark if you have any additional questions
  3. Send transcripts to an Academic Advisor for evaluation. Unofficial transcripts may be sent for an initial evaluation, but official transcripts will be required upon application to the nursing program.
