Transfer credits

Students may take courses for credit toward the Masters of Nursing program from other universities providing they receive approval in advance from the Assistant Dean Graduate and Advanced RN Studies. Most commonly these will be electives.

Students wishing to take nursing courses from another university should discuss the transferability of the course with the Assistant Dean. Courses transferred from other universities are credited but do not contribute toward the student's cumulative GPA.

Transfer process

Students must request permission to take the course in writing from the Director of Graduate Studies, providing a course outline and contact person at the other university, and indicating when the course is to be taken. If the course is appropriate, the Director will request approval from the School of Graduate Studies.

After the student has completed the course, the student must request transfer of credit in writing and provide an official transcript. The student is expected to achieve a B grade or better for transfer. Upon receipt of this request, the Director will recommend to the School of Graduate Studies that credit be given.

Fee reimbursement

Students who take courses at other universities for transfer credit while paying tuition to UNB may request reimbursement for fees paid elsewhere.

The current policy is to reimburse up to the cost of a similar course at UNB. Students must pay course fees at the other university.

Once the course has been successfully completed the student should submit their receipt for fees paid and an official transcript to the Director of Graduate Studies who will recommend reimbursement to the School of Graduate Studies.

Normally, reimbursement is in the form of credit to the student's UNB account.
